Lloyd Griffiths, dean of the School of Information Technology and Engineering, is one of the featured panelists at a Northern Virginia Technology Council (NVTC) meeting today discussing “Leveraging Resources from Regional Universities and Colleges.” Sudhakar Shenoy, a member of George Mason’s Board of Visitors and founder, chairman, and CEO of IMC, a systems and software development firm, will join him on the panel in his role as NVTC board chair. The final panelist is James Adams, acting deputy director, technology services, National Institute of Standards and Technology. The event is being held at the McLean Hilton.

The program will offer a forum for George Mason and other colleges and universities to talk about the often untapped and underutilized resources they can offer area businesses—cutting-edge research and technologies, case studies, and joint research projects with academics. At the same time, NVTC board members from companies such as Training Solutions, BAE Systems, Nextel, and Venable LLP will be present to share their experiences working with and benefiting from the services, programs, and resources of colleges and universities.

Other institutions expected to send representatives to the forum are American, DeVry, Georgetown, Marymount, and Shenandoah universities; University of Maryland; University of Virginia; Virginia Tech; and Northern Virginia Community College.

NVTC is the membership association for the technology community in Northern Virginia.
