Advanced Manufacturing & Carbon Materials Workshop
August 28
hosted by Rice University

Are you developing Advanced Manufacturing or Carbon Materials technologies or solutions?

Are you looking for Advanced Manufacturing or Carbon Materials solutions or partners?

The Technology Collaboration Center will hold a workshop on Advanced Manufacturing & Carbon Materials on August 28, 2018, hosted by Rice University in Houston, with presentations on the latest technology developments or unmet challenges, related to the two topics areas.

If your organization is interested in advanced manufacturing or carbon materials, please visit the TCC’s website to register for the workshop, or to request an opportunity to make a presentation.

Tickets for the workshop are $100. TCC Members get a 50% discount. TCC Individual Memberships can be purchased for $150, which includes a ticket to the workshop and discounts on TCC workshops for the next year.
