Abstract:

In 1995, the National Academy of Engineering NAE initiated a series of annual symposia called Frontiers of Engineering FOE. The meetings are designed to bring together a select group of the nation s emerging engineering leaders from industry, academe, and government labs to discuss pioneering technical work and leading-edge research in various engineering fields and industry sectors. The goal of the symposia is to introduce these outstanding engineers to each other, and through this interaction facilitate collaboration in engineering, the transfer of new techniques and approaches across fields, and establishment of contacts among the next generation of engineering leaders. Ultimately, this strengthens and builds US innovative capacity. At the request of overseas entities familiar with the program, FOE has expanded to include bilateral meetings with Germany, Japan, India, China, and the EU. The US Frontiers meetings have been supported by various government agencies such as the Department of Defense and the National Science Foundation as well as corporate sponsors and a foundation. The Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency DARPA has been supporting the US Frontiers of Engineering meetings at the level of 50,000year since 1999. This final technical report covers the most recent grant, HR0011-12-1-0002, for which the period of performance was 030112 022815.
