Regional Dialogues

The National Engineering Forum’s regional dialogues bring together thought leaders to focus on three engineering challenges: capacity, capability, and competitiveness – the 3C’s. Participants represent stakeholder groups that are in the best position to address the challenges and enable a dynamic view of the past, present, and future of American engineering. The National Engineering Forum is building a community of action.

See below for more information on completed regional dialogues, including recap synopses from each event and to read our report “Engineering our Nation’s Future.”
