Funds for coffee and more giveaways are coming from a small grant from our local education foundation.
The goal of the event is to pair Faurecia and other industry players with potential partners that can provide an expanded range of technological solutions on the road to the car of the future.
During the session, the SMEs and mid-market companies will present their innovations in well-being, innovative materials and man-machine interfaces (MMI) – areas in which the Faurecia Group has already harnessed its expertise in demonstrators such as Active Wellness™ 2.0, Intuition and Smart Pebbles.
The conference showcases the pedagogy, strategies, activities, assignments, tools, and technologies that Mason faculty, and those supporting faculty in the classroom, are using to have a positive impact on the student learning experience across disciplines at the university level.
