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:
‘Building a Sustainable Future for Texas’ will examine key issues like energy, health, water and transportation and the challenges we face ensuring an equitable, efficient supply of them in the coming century. Keynote speakers include Mr. John Hofmeister, founder and chief executive of Citizens for Affordable Energy and former president of Shell Oil Company, Dr. Stephen Klineberg, professor and founding director of the Kinder Institute for Urban Research at Rice University, and Dr. Marcia McNutt, president of the National Academy of Sciences.
What kind of place should Texas be 100 years from now? That is the question the TAMEST 2017 Annual Conference will address in San Antonio, January 10–12, 2017. We hope to see you there.
