2022 Spotlight: Materials for 5G Infrastructure


Thursday, February 24th 
Time:  9:30 a.m. - 11:00 a.m. ET

Please join up to 30 minutes early to network and “find a seat” as industry presentations will begin promptly at 9:30 a.m. ET.  

Presented by the Penn State Materials Research Institute, the Materials Spotlight Series is designed to create connections and spark discussions between industry and Penn State faculty and students that lead to productive research collaborations.   

The second edition of the 2022 Materials Spotlight Series will be on Materials for 5G Infrastructure.  This forum will look at the short-, mid-, and long-term challenges for the connectivity industry, including maximizing use of the electromagnetic spectrum, increasing demands for speed and latency, data deluge, and getting value out of IoT.  This information-age-relevant discussion will highlight viewpoints from three major industry participants and three faculty groups working to keep Penn State on the bleeding edge of research in the field.
