SERC Sponsor Research Review 2015

7th Annual SERC Sponsor Research Review

Thursday, December 3, 2015GUSoCS.Atrium
8:00 am – 5:00 pm
Hosted by: FHI360 Conference Center
1825 Connecticut Avenue NW
Washington, DC 20009-5721

For the 7th Annual SERC Sponsor Research Review, more than a dozen of ongoing SERC research tasks were presented among government sponsors, collaborating SERC researchers and members of industry to discuss the impact of the research on the landscape of Systems Engineering. Taking place for the first time in the Adams Morgan area of downtown Washington, DC, the event provided a highlight on results of SERC research projects, many of which are ready for pilot use and early transition to practice, and potential opportunities for government agencies and others to participate in the projects and their application.
