New catalog of Piedmont Triad’s aerospace assets features N.C. A&T and JSNN research capabilities

Catalog coverThe North Carolina Aerospace Initiative has published a new document titled, “Catalog of Innovation Assets Supporting Aerospace and Advanced Manufacturers,” focusing on the Piedmont Triad Region.

It provides an extensive rundown of labs, research centers and organizations of interest to aerospace firms, with much of the catalog devoted to N.C. AT&T and JSNN.  Facilities listed for the two institutions include:

  • JSNN: NanoBio Launchpad, Gateway Materials Testing Center, and NanoManufacturing Innovation Consortium.
  • A&T: College of Engineering, Center for Human Machine Studies, Center for Advanced Materials and Smart Structures, Center for Composite Materials Research, NSF Engineering Research Center for Revolutionizing Metallic Biomaterials, the Transportation Institute , Center for Autonomous Control and Information Technology, Center for Advanced Studies in Identity Sciences, Center for Aviation Safety, Center for Cyber Defense, Waste Management Institute, Center for Energy Research and Technology (CERT), NSF CREST Bioenergy Center, NOAA Interdisciplinary Scientific Environmental Technology Cooperative Science Center, International Trade Center, Interdisciplinary Center for Entrepreneurship and E-Business, and the FAA Center for Excellence for General Aviation.

The report was prepared by RTI International for the Piedmont Triad Partnership.

Reminder: Summer conferences include ethics workshop, nanomanufacturing

North Carolina A&T will be involved with two significant events for researchers in August. If you’re interested in either one, now is the time to register.

  • Ethical Dimensions of Coupled Natural and Human Systems Research: Monday August 13-Tuesday August 14, all day each day, Fort IRC, Room 410.  N.C. A&T and Penn State faculty will conduct a this workshop for A&T faculty, post-docs, and doctoral students in the sciences and engineering who are interested in integrating the ethical dimensions of coupled natural and human systems into their classes. Registration continues through July 15.
  • Nanomanufacturing conference: Wednesday, August 15, all day, at the Joint School of Nanoscience and Nanoengineering. Nanotechnology and nanomanufacturing are creating jobs in clean energy, aerospace, medicine and biotech, materials and other areas. The Nanomanufacturing Conference is one of the nation’s premier Advanced Manufacturing conferences, featuring national and international nanotech innovators, leading researchers, government leaders and visionaries.
