AIEA Thematic Forum Location and Travel Information

The AIEA Thematic Forum will be held at North Carolina State University March 21-22, 2016 in Raleigh, North Carolina. NC State is uniquely positioned to host the Forum on Leveraging Industry Partnerships in a Global Context for Student and Faculty Success due to its close proximity to leading institutions of higher education and the Research Triangle Park, one of the largest research parks in the world.

Each year, NC State adds $6.5 billion to the statewide economy, equivalent to creating more than 90,000 new jobs. That represents significant return on investment for the citizens of North Carolina in the form of research advances, innovative technologies, successful companies, skilled graduates and new jobs waiting for them.
