Building an Innovation Ecosystem around Water and Sanitation Solutions for Underserved Communities:
This talk will discuss the formation of an innovation ecosystem around the concept of One Water, Sanitation, and Health. The goal of this innovation ecosystem is to enable leading edge research and industry to collaborate on transforming water and sanitation infrastructure for underserved communities by developing deployable solutions, providing avenues to commercialization via IP licensing, and minimizing risks associated with scaling and commercializing new technologies.
Michael Dickey, Ph.D.
A Soft Future:
This talk will discuss research on materials and strategies to make soft and stretchable devices such as robotics, wearable electronics, and energy harvesters.
Gary Gilleskie, Ph.D.
The AIM-Bio Program: Research and Workforce Development for the Advancement of Biopharmaceutical Manufacturing
The AIM-Bio program, led by the Biomanufacturing Training and Education Center (BTEC), is a collaboration with the Technical University of Denmark (DTU) that seeks to establish a world-class program on bioprocessing research and development and workforce education and training. This presentation will describe the research topics being studied and why the research matters.
Jacob L. Jones, Ph.D.
Introduction to the Science and Technologies for Phosphorus Sustainability (STEPS) Center: STEPS is a convergence research center that addresses the complex challenges in phosphorus sustainability by integrating disciplinary contributions across the physical, life, social, and economic sciences. STEPS draws from atomic and molecular insights to develop materials and technologies that are deployed at the human scale while considering supply-chain logistics, life cycle, and other regional and global issues.
Dr. James Lester, Ph.D.
The National Science Foundation AI Institute for Engaged Learning:
NC State and the National Science Foundation have recently launched a 5-year, $20 million institute for research and development of AI technologies to support human learning. In this presentation, we will provide an overview of the institute with a focus on its AI-driven learning technologies for K-12 education.
