About this event

TEAM TN invites its partners to the second TEAM TN Summit, May 6-7, at the University of Memphis FedEx Institute of Technology’s The Zone. 

As TEAM TN begins drafting its action plan to position Tennessee at the leading edge of transportation electrification and mobility, we want to hear from community, workforce development and industry partners on programs to address gaps and barriers to entry in technology-based career fields like transportation and mobility; as well as how to improve access to these technologies and the economic opportunities they promise. This Summit is focused on the needs of TEAM TN Workforce Development, DEIA and Strategic Partnerships working groups. 

 

Participants will provide input on TEAM TN’s governance structure, feedback on potential projects and progress reports from all five working groups, including Use Inspired R&D and Technology Licensing and New Ventures. 

 

A light breakfast and lunch will be provided. 

 

Participants are invited to stay for Day 2, May 7, as working groups and leadership debrief to develop TEAM TN action plans further.
