Please make your plans to participate in the annual SFSA Research Review July 21-23. This year there will be three substantial changes to the format of the meeting. First, in light of COVID-19, the meeting will not be in-person but by video conference (virtual meeting). Second, the meeting is being organized by topic instead of by academic partner. Third, the meeting will focus on SFSA’s Digital Innovative Design (DID) program, and be sequenced over three half days. The Review covers the latest in both Carbon & Low Alloy and High Alloy steel casting research, and is your opportunity to interact with the researchers and provide industry steering. The event vets our research portfolio to select the R&D projects to be featured at the National T&O. Registration is required and must be completed by Friday, July 17th to receive the link for the event. For questions, contact David Poweleit.
