On November 12th and 13th 2015, we held a CASCADE planning workshop, which brought potential industrial partners and CASCADE researchers together. The goal of the workshop was to introduce the NSF I/UCRC model and the vision and mission of the CASCADE center to potential partners and get feedback from them towards research projects that CASCADE will carry out.
