Presented by RTI International

One of the great buzzwords from this era, "smart" is everywhere: smart cars, smart phones, smart technology, smart classrooms, smart cities ... the list goes on. Join us to learn about some of the "smarts" being developed, expanded upon, and implemented in our area from five of The Triangle's top innovators.

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.

Can't attend in person? The event will be livestreamed here beginning at 6pm on Thursday, January 17th. A week or so after, we will have it hosted on our website here.
