*Attend one or both of these exciting days*

Day 1 – Learn and Network

June 9, 2021 – 9:00 AM – 11:30 AM

Join us on Day 1 for introductions to research and resources at UNH. After some short introductory presentations, participants will be able to move around the virtual room to network with other attendees, learn more from the presenters, discuss pressing challenges with experts and colleagues, and talk about potential collaborations and partnerships.

Day 2 – Collaborative Sandpit

June 10, 2021 – 9:00 AM – 12:00 PM

Join us on Day 2 for an aerospace science and manufacturing collaborative sandpit. During this event, you will hear from experts in the field about some pressing challenges in aerospace science and manufacturing and then work in interdisciplinary teams to develop potential solutions to those challenges. Throughout the sandpit, trained facilitators will help teams to focus the discussion and guide groups through the ideation process to explore solutions.

The goal of this collaborative sandpit is to help attendees meet researchers and other professionals in this field, forge new partnerships, explore collaborations, and generate ideas for potential future projects.

Why UNH?

The University of New Hampshire is one of only 13 land, sea, and space-grant institutions in the United States. UNH is designated as an R1 research institution and has significant expertise and resources related to the aerospace and manufacturing fields. For over 60 years, the university has worked with NASA on numerous missions and was recently awarded a $108 million NASA contract to develop instrumentation for a new satellite that will study coastal areas (the second largest contract NASA has awarded to a university in the last decade). UNH is also home to the John Olson Advanced Manufacturing Center which is focused on advanced manufacturing education, research, and innovation.
