Georgia Universities: Providing Connections and Advancing Electric Mobility R&D
20 Jun 2023
Georgia is at the epicenter of the nation’s electric vehicle revolution, and its system of higher education is working to drive the industry forward. By prioritizing research and development and gathering the top researchers and players together, Georgia’s college and university systems are a prime incubator for the kinds of collaboration and innovation needed to support the quickly evolving field.
In April, the University of Georgia hosted more than 150 people for a one-day Electric Mobility Summit to learn more about the current state of electric mobility and how educational institutions can support the expansion of the EV industry. The summit connected researchers with key stakeholders including government officials and economic development professionals, and leaders from companies like Kia, Rivian, and SK Battery America.
