    Hello everyone,

    ASM is once again hosting the Nitinol for Medical Devices course. The next course is happening on March 27-29, 2023 with a virtual option. The in-person location is the ASM Word Headquarters in Novelty, OH. Dr. Alan R. Pelton, Chief Technical Officer of G.

If anyone would like to share more about their experience at this event in the past, please do! For more information about the course, location, lodging and more please see the link below.

    Additionally, this is just a reminder that the SMST Entrepreneurial Workshop is being held in-person this year March 14-15, 2023 in Fort Worth, TX. This is a great networking opportunity and an excellent way to hear from successful SMA entrepreneurs. At this event, you can pitch your idea for a new SMA technology during the first ever competitive SMST SMArt Tank. The January 30, 2023 deadline is coming up fast!
