CCEFP Summit at the University of Minnesota
May 19-21, 2020
The Summit is a bi-annual meeting for the fluid power industry and academic researcher collaborators in the Center for Compact and Efficient Fluid Power. The Summit connects industry to university resources and talent through technical presentations, networking opportunities, facility tours of the host university, and special features. To conclude the event, the Summit offers a closed-door meeting of the CCEFP Industry Engagement Committee (IEC).
The CCEFP is carefully monitoring campus policies and recommendations from the University of Minnesota as a result of the COVID19 virus. At this time, our institution has transitioned teaching and learning onto virtual platforms while other operations continue as normal.
We have decided it is too soon to make a decision on the fate of the CCEFP Summit, May 19-21, however, we do plan to make a formal decision on our event by early April.
