This MEET THE SCIENTISTS event is organized to maximize the opportunities for networking among scientists as well as to provide a forum for sharing Virginia Tech's research capabilities available at the new research center in the National Capital Region, in Roanoke, and in Blacksburg. Scientists from some of Virginia Tech's major institutes and the Colleges of Science and Engineering will host six presentations that are arranged to allow interested parties to have the option of attending up to three sessions.

Each session will provide a brief overview of the research portfolio of the respective institute or college and include short presentations by scientists on their current work. In addition to scheduled networking at 8-9 AM and noon to 12:30 PM, time is allocated for networking at the end of each presentation.

MEET THE SCIENTISTS is co-sponsored by Virginia Tech, business network VT-SERGE (Science and Engineering for Regional Growth Enterprise), and VT-IDEA (Intelligence and Defense Executive Alumni).
