NASEM study on ChE in 21st Century - Town Hall at Annual Meeting

  • 1.  NASEM study on ChE in 21st Century - Town Hall at Annual Meeting

    AIChExchange announced a town hall at the Annual Meeting to discuss the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine (NASEM) study on the future of Chemical Engineering.  The announcement says "This will be the first among many opportunities for AIChE members to provide input to the Chemical Engineering in the 21st Century study."

    Here is the link to the item in the 2019 AIChE Annual Meeting website:  The National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine Town Hall and Coffee Break   The session is scheduled for Wednesday November 13 from 8-10:30 EST.

    I have to question, though, why this session is being run at a time when it conflicts with technical presentations and not between 10:30 and 12:30.  I would love to attend the town hall, but I will be delivering a paper at a conflicting session.  I wonder how many others will be unable to attend the town hall because of the technical program.  I will also post this on the AIChE Annual Meeting discussion.

    There has been some dialogue about this NASEM study already in another Discussion Central post:  IChemE and policy vs AIChE and policy.  Some key links about the study from that other post:

    I hope that AIChE members give much input on your vision of the future of chemical engineering.

    Looking forward to some good discussion,
    Aaron

    Is anybody planning on attending this town hall?  I'm not going to the conference so I won't be able to attend and I'm sorry to be missing it.
