November's Topic - Sustainability 

If recycling is your idea of sustainable living, come out to November's RTP 180 and expand your knowledge of this increasingly technical and innovative field. We'll have researchers and entrepreneurs from across the Triangle taking the stage to wow us with their greenest ideas. From producing electricity from trash to reusing old buildings to grow food, we promise you'll learn something new!

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. On the third Thursday of every month, come join us and partake of free beer and smarts — the show starts at 6:00pm, but our doors open before if you want to come test the (always local) taps. Afterwards, professionally edited video segments of our speakers will be posted, in case you missed the livestream! To join the conversation on Twitter, use our hashtag: #RTP180
