What kind of place will Texas be 100 years from now? Can it be smarter, cleaner and more innovative? Research in Texas is moving the state in that direction, and at the upcoming 2017 Annual Conference of The Academy of Medicine, Engineering and Science of Texas (TAMEST), Texas’ top minds will gather to find solutions for the state’s growing population, dynamic economy and changing climate.

Special programming this year also includes a can’t-miss conversation on the future of higher education in Texas, featuring chancellors and presidents of Texas’ major universities:
