Members of the Georgia Tech community who are interested in Supply Chain, Logistics and Trade (SCLT) are cordially invited to attend an internal workshop on Tuesday, February 26, that will be held in the Auditorium of the Georgia Tech Manufacturing Institute (GTMI) from 1:00-5:00 p.m.
The intent of the SCLT workshop is three-fold: 1) assessment of areas of our technical strengths and challenges – core strengths, critical mass of core faculty and infrastructure, leadership for large-scale proposals; 2) initial steps toward building a broader community of SCLT enthusiasts at Georgia Tech, and creating a blueprint for R&D at Georgia Tech as a leader in the SCLT space; and 3) outcomes from the workshop can be used in large-scale proposals, e.g., the National Network for Manufacturing Innovation Institutes (NNMI), Department of Energy Innovation Hubs, and National Science Foundation Engineering Research Centers.
Dr. Don Ratliff, Executive Director of The Georgia Tech Supply Chain and Logistics Institute, is the convener of the workshop. Dr. Jane Ammons, Chair of the H. Milton Stewart School of Industrial & Systems Engineering, and Dr. Ben Wang, Executive Director of the Georgia Tech Manufacturing Institute, are the workshop sponsors. The first SCLT workshop will be limited to GT personnel only.
The following components will be built into the ½-day workshop agenda: 1) a discussion on large scale funding opportunities, 2) lessons learned from the additive manufacturing proposal for NNMI, 3) a series of presentations by area representatives (speakers TBD, volunteers are welcome), and 4) a panel discussion or breakout session. An agenda is forthcoming.
Time: 1:00-5:00 p.m., Tuesday, February 26, 2013
Venue: GTMI Auditorium, 1st Floor, MaRC Building (refreshments will be served)
