President's Keynote Highlights GTRI's 75th Anniversary Symposium

The Georgia Tech Research Institute (GTRI) and its applied-research emphasis are vital to Georgia Tech's mission, and the current support and collaboration between GTRI and the university's academic units will continue to grow.

That was the core message delivered by Georgia Tech President G.P. "Bud" Peterson at the GTRI 75th Anniversary Technology Symposium on April 20. The symposium, one of several observances of GTRI's 75th year of operation, featured presentations by GTRI researchers as well as a keynote address by the new president.

"As universities are increasingly called upon to become drivers of innovation and high-end economic development, the importance of the role of GTRI and organizations like it will continue to grow,"
