The PMEC All-Center Meeting is the one time each year the full team from the three PMEC universities gather to learn about the latest happenings at the Center and to discuss science and technology developments with our partners from academia, research laboratories, government and industry.

Thanks to all of you who attended this year’s meeting and contributed to the university-industry research collaboration workshop!

Links to presentations are included in the agenda below and a gallery of posters is available here.

We will be assembling a white paper summarizing the discussions from the university-industry activity over the coming weeks.

If you attended, we'd be interested in your feedback to help shape future meetings. You may share your thoughts here.
