The TAPPI/PIMA Student Summit is going virtual!
The Summit Planning Committee is committed to providing a safe learning and networking environment for students and determined that rising COVID cases warranted a move to virtual. In order to be accessible to a wider audience of students, registration is complimentary (but required).
Updates will be posted soon on the program, speakers and fun activities so stay tuned! We hope you join us online February 19 – 20.
What is Student Summit?
The TAPPI/PIMA Student Summit is an annual event designed for students interested in the pulp, paper, packaging and allied industries. It offers direct interaction with industry leaders as well as the opportunity to gain valuable information about employment and career development within their field.
The event is an excellent venue for advanced undergraduate and graduate students to learn about opportunities after graduation as well as some of the key challenges and opportunities existing in the industry today. It is the only event that brings students from paper and packaging schools together to reinforce their interest in joining the industry. Session topics have included Nanotechnology, Printed Electronics, and the State of the Industry, all topics that are not regularly taught as part of their curriculum.
