The Roanoke/Blacksburg region is a rapidly growing area of science and technology, yet there are relatively few venues to get to know the people, companies and universities working in the field.
The Southwest Virginia Science Forum is aimed at bringing together the region’s scientists and engineers to learn about the work we’re doing, the companies and institutions that are doing it, and the people responsible for research and product development.
There will be poster presentations by many of the area’s academic and corporate researchers and engineers. Drinks and refreshments will be served. The evening will provide lots of time for socializing, understanding , and maybe even producing a collaborative idea or two.
The Forum will take place on Wednesday, December 10, 2008 from 4:00-7:00 PM, in the Fralin Biotechnology Center on the campus of Virginia Tech. It is hosted jointly by the Virginia Biotechnology Association (VaBIO) and the NewVa Corridor Technology Council (NCTC). Advance registration is $10 for members of VaBIO or NCTC, $20 for non-members. Student registration is complimentary. Please join us for an afternoon and evening of socializing, learning and making some new friends.
To register for the event or to present a poster, please visit VaBIO.org, thetechnologycouncil.com or call Sherri Halloran at (804) 643-6360
