Through Ops21, a Futureworks NYC program backed by NYCEDC and led by ITAC, we are hosting 24 advanced technology workshops across three topic areas: advanced materials, digital manufacturing, and robotics.
This is an Advanced Materials Workshop that is Food and Beverage focused, which is intended to further your knowledge of materials used in food and beverage businesses (e.g. packaging, ingredients/ shelf life, etc.), to share case studies on food and beverage packaging; and to discuss related challenges faced by NYC manufacturers.
About Advanced Materials:
Advanced Materials is the advance or modification of traditional materials to obtain better or specific properties, resulting in improved products. Benefits include optimized product performance and durability (e.g. strength, weight, shelf life); lower environmental risks (e.g. coatings, finishes, sustainable materials); and reduced project lifecycle costs.
Workshop eligibility: This workshop is for established NYC manufacturing or industrial companies operating (making or assembling products) within NYC’s five boroughs. Established NYC manufacturers are those that are revenue producing and having been in operation for more than 5 years. If you are a revenue producing NYC manufacturer that has been operating, as defined above, for less than 5 years, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org prior to registration so we can see whether this program makes sense for your company or not.
