Attendees at the ERC Symposium

ERC Symposium

Every two years, the ERC organizes and hosts a symposium that focuses on special topics that are current and relevant to people involved in the transportation and combustion fields. Presentations are given by a range of experts providing perspectives on technical, strategic planning, policy and regulatory issues. The meetings have traditionally been well attended with 100-150 people from engine, automotive, truck, and energy companies.
