ALERT SPARC Webinar Series 2020

ALERT hosted the online webinar series, SPARC (Seminars to Promote ALERT Research and Collaboration), beginning in June and continuing through the end of September, resulting in eight webinars over a four-month period with an average of fifty attendees per event. SPARC features some of ALERT’s researchers presenting their work with industry and government partners. As the ALERT Technology Showcase for 2020 was postponed due to COVID-19 limitations, the webinar series allowed for a forum to present the Center’s successful research partnerships and engage external audiences from academia, industry, and government who would typically attend the in-person showcase. ALERT plans to build on these success stories at the 2021 ALERT Technology Showcase.
