THE FRONTIER 800 | 800 PARK OFFICES DRIVE, RTP Nov 15 5:00 pm - Nov 15 7:30 pm


Presented by RTI International

In honor of Military Appreciation Month, this November, RTP180 will bring five experts from around the region to discuss Military Tech. Our state's military hubs in Fayetteville, Jacksonville and Goldsboro may feel far away, but these speakers will give us a taste of the military culture, research and technology happening right here in the Triangle.

What advancements are being created here to serve, protect and enhance our military? How do Universities play a role in the military? How can one join North Carolina's Defense Economy? These topics and more will be covered November 15.

About RTP180

Innovation. Education. Industry. These are powerful angles—and what the Research Triangle Park is known for. At RTP180, speakers from our three founding universities, Park companies, and the community at-large are called upon to take the stage to speak passionately about what matters to them. Doors open at 5:00pm for networking, beer & popcorn. Show kicks off at 6:00pm.

This year, we’ve chosen four themes for RTP180: Science, Human Communications & Interactions, Technology and Economic Development. Each of our monthly topics will fall under one of these themes.

The hashtag for this event is #RTP180. Get social with us by tagging @theRTP and @RTPFrontier.
