NC State College of Physical and Mathematical Sciences (PAMS) is hosting a unique research showcase in September.
NC State faculty have been solving real-world challenges since our founding 125 years ago. Researchers from the university’s College of Physical and Mathematical Sciences (PAMS) will be taking that legacy to the next level this fall when they come out of their labs to share their latest work with potential partners in government and industry.
Sponsored by BASF, PAMS’ first-ever “Access Day” is Thursday, September 6, from 8:30 a.m. to noon at NC State’s McKimmon Center. The event will showcase a variety of research posters and displays related to NC State’s focus areas of health and well-being, energy and environment, and safety and security.
Guests are welcome to browse the latest research and technology from across the college or, if they have a specific science or technology challenge they would like to address, they can submit a request beforehand online atgo.ncsu.edu/accessday2012. About 35 faculty and graduate student researchers have signed up to participate so far, and the list is growing as specific requests continue to come in (an updates list of participating researchers can be found on the event Website).
“From SAS in the 1970s, to more recent examples like Agile Sciences and WebAssign, NC State has always been a great place to start a business,” says PAMS Dean Daniel L. Solomon. “Through programs like Access Day, we’re trying to build an environment that stimulates opportunities for entrepreneurship and collaboration.”
Access Day is FREE to attend, but registration is required. Register online at go.ncsu.edu/accessday2012 or contact Denise Malloy Hubbard, PAMS Corporate and Foundation Relations, at 919-515-3462 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
