The Pascal Society is the annual giving society of the NFPA Education and Technology Foundation, dedicated to meeting the technology and workforce development needs of the U.S. fluid power industry.

Named after Blaise Pascal, the French mathematician, physicist and inventor whose famous law describes fluid power’s force multiplier effect, the Pascal Society seeks to create a similar multiplier effect for the fluid power industry. By combining the financial and volunteer contributions of many individuals into one concerted effort, the Society will develop the resources, tools and people needed to tackle this difficult challenge. Through this support and engagement, companies can:

  • Stay abreast of new developments in fluid power technology.
  • Gain competitive insights by networking with customers, suppliers and competitors.
  • Access researchers and research facilities to help solve technical challenges.
  • Interact with and recruit from a large number of students with strong fluid power and systems engineering experience.
  • Provide oversight and guidance to ensure the CCEFP stays focused on the needs of the fluid power industry.

The best way for industry to support the CCEFP is through tax-deductible donations to the NFPA Education and Technology Foundation. As one of CCEFP’s partner organizations, the National Fluid Power Association (NFPA) has created an annual giving society within its Foundation. Donations to this Pascal Society will be used to support the educational and pre-competitive research activities of the CCEFP.
