Public/Private Partnerships for EDU Success

Bridging industry and education can offer a unique opportunity for students to learn. Itron, a world-leading technology and services company dedicated to the resourceful use of energy and water, recently partnered with University of Texas professor Michael Webber to create an interactive app, Resourcefulness, that teaches key concepts about energy and water. Itron recognized the critical need of developing a skilled STEM workforce and believes that education plays a major role in the ability to raise awareness about important sustainability challenges. In this session, Itron will share why they believe public-private partnerships are critical for education and future STEM skilled workforce.
