His talk, titled “How to ERC,” refers to the NSF Engineering Research Center (ERC) program that was established in 1984 to build complex research centers emphasizing system aspects of engineering with strong industrial collaboration and that contain a strong education component. Successive generations of ERCs have been credited with upholding those principles while also increasing diversity and inclusion, an innovation ecosystem and emphasizing convergent research.
