Join us to learn more about the innovative mobility technologies being developed and commercialized at the University of Michigan. We will hear from Eric Petersen, Program Director of the Michigan Translational Research and Commercialization Innovation Hub for Advanced Transportation(MTRAC) https://cfe.umich.edu/mtrac/. This state sponsored program assists university researchers in getting their idea out into the world. Eric will describe the program, processes, funded projects and how to get involved.
We will also hear from two innovative mobility companies on their unique technology and its impact on the future of mobility.
