Annual Industry Workshop

ASSIST is gearing up for for the 4th annual industry workshop.  This event gathers faculty researchers and students from all our partner institutions at Florida International University to show technology demonstrations and prototypes to our collected industry partner representatives.  This year we will demonstrate the completely self-powered SAP testbed, a number of new health and environmental sensors and advances in data and wearables.  The primary theme for this year’s event is on commercialization.  Many ASSIST technologies are reaching a point of maturity where hand-off to industry makes sense.  Through presentations and break-out working group sessions, we will lay the framework to accelerate technology transfer from the lab to the market.

Current industry partners can REGISTER HERE (note, you will need to login with your account username and password)

If you are not currently an Industry Partner in the ASSIST Center and would like to learn more about participating in the Center and in this meeting, please contact Tom Snyder (
