The Science, Technology and Policy Leadership Series features external, high-level science and technology and policy leaders from industry, government or academia, and provides opportunities for Virginia Tech faculty and researchers to gain perspectives on advances and future challenges in key areas of interest in the NCR. The majority of the seminars take place in the Virginia Tech Research Center — Arlington (VTRC-A) Executive Briefing Center, however, there are also opportunities to hold these at other sites around the region. The NCR seminar series’ also typically incorporate a networking aspect, either before or after the speaker’s presentation depending on scheduling.
