UA Rome Center to Provide Student Access to NASA Leader's Event

University of Arkansas

University of Arkansas students have access to participate in a private event featuring Douglas Terrier, chief technologist with the National Aeronautics and Space Administration.

The event is organized by the European Institute for Innovation and Sustainability in partnership with the University of Arkansas Rome Center and ENEL X.

Terrier will discuss space technologies on Wednesday, Sept. 23, at 11:30 a.m. CDT in Fayetteville (6:30 p.m. CEST). The event is scheduled to reach audiences in Europe but is available to U of A students in the U.S. as well.

"We are excited to be part of this informative lecture," said Francesco Bedeschi, director of the UA Rome Center. "We are especially happy that the Rome Center can provide access to this event for all University of Arkansas students, regardless of their current location."

To register for the free program, students can email to request login information. Terrier is the agency's principal advisor and advocate on NASA technology policy and programs, helping plot the strategic direction of the agency's space technology program.

Established in 1958, NASA is an independent agency of the U.S. federal government responsible for the civilian space program, as well as aeronautics and space research.
