RNC-UBE-EMBER : EMBER Conference Details

SPRING 2017 EMBER CONFERENCE

June 11-13, 2017, 

Harris-Stowe State University, St. Louis, MO

The 2017 conference has a two-fold purpose, to discuss coordination efforts for the EMBER network and to initiate and communicate ideas for collaborations. The conference will employ an innovative networking strategy combining elements of a conference with that of an entrepreneurial “start-up” weekend. Mini-seminars and round-table discussions will be combined with start-up elements where participants pitch ideas and form working groups.
