Robert M. White Memorial Symposium

Robert M. White
A National Academy of Engineering (NAE) symposium held in honor of former NAE President Robert M. White was held June 14, 2016 in Washington, DC.

To illustrate and represent Bob’s optimistic vision of meeting the world's challenges, we have decided both to look back at his achievements in science, engineering, and building institutions, and to focus on the future as he would wish. The symposium covered weather forecasting, meeting the climate challenge, and assessing both the institutional change and institutional creations needed for our world today. The event closed with reflections on “Bob White the Man” by a panel of former colleagues, friends, and family members.

This event was made possible by generous support from The Richard Lounsbery Foundation.
