The Research Triangle Park

About the Program

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 at 5:00pm if you want to come test the (always local) taps. To join the conversation on Twitter, use our hashtag: #RTP180

Tickets are free and all 350 seats are usually claimed. If the event sells out or you can’t make it, you can watch via livestream or view the recorded livestream later on our YouTube channel
