The July 2 Industry Summit was a lively event combining focused presentations with productive discussions and proposals for new ideas throughout the exhibits. We hope you'll explore the post-summit materials posted here, and we look forward to continuing the conversations.
The first-ever NCAR/UCAR Industry Summit on the Future of Forecasting featured world-leading researchers describing new technologies and emerging applications that have important implications for society. The summit focused on renewable energy, highway safety, water management, space weather, wildfire prediction, severe storm forecasts, air pollution mitigation, aviation safety, regional climate projections, and science education, as well as new observing technologies and software developments.
This was a unique chance for officials in both the commercial sector and government agencies to preview emerging research developments. NCAR and UCAR scientists and contracting staff were on hand to discuss potential collaborations, as well as licensing and commercialization opportunities. The setting included private meeting areas to accommodate more detailed conversations.
The Summit on the Future of Forecasting was held on July 2, 2013, from 8:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. at NCAR and UCAR’s Center Green campus in Boulder. For those able to join the night before, there was a private reception from 5:00 to 7:00 p.m., featuring tours of NCAR’s iconic Mesa Lab facility overlooking the city.
