Government, business, academic and community leaders from throughout the region met on the East Tennessee State University (ETSU) campus on May 27-28, for the 20th Annual Tennessee Valley Corridor (TVC) 2015 National Summit. Activities took place in the D.P. Culp University Center.
“Education Fuels the TVC Economy” was the theme of this event, hosted by ETSU President Dr. Brian Noland in cooperation with U.S. Congressman Phil Roe.
The annual summit, which began in 1995, is designed to build relationships and collaborations among federal institutions, research universities, and science and technology leaders in the private sector. It showcases the TVC’s quality of life and the people, business, and natural and scientific resources needed for high-tech research, development, business and investment in the 21st century.
