TOPIC | Food 2.0

If there's one thing that binds all the RTP staff, it's our love of FOOD! Given that this time of year is flush with culinary opportunity, we deiced on a flavorful topic for our last RTP 180 of 2015. We've lined up a group of speakers that will educate, enlighten and expound on the many intricacies of our society's relationship with food and how it continues to evolve and change.

Innovation. Education. Industry. These are powerful angles – and what the Research Triangle Park is known for. At “RTP 180°,” speakers from our three founding universities, local companies and the community at-large are called upon to take the stage to speak passionately about what matters to them. The show kicks off at 6pm, but our doors are open beforehand for anyone that would like to come early.

The hashtag for this event is #RTP180 and we always livestream from our YouTube channel over at Afterwards, professionally edited video segments of our speakers will be posted, in case you missed the livestream!

Tickets are free and all 300 seats are usually claimed, so register early!
