Update on 2021 Special Technical Meetings

FRI is actively monitoring international travel restrictions due to COVID-19, so we can schedule Special Technical meetings to your area as soon as possible. As vaccines become more widely available, we are cautiously optimistic that travel will become possible during the fall of 2021 or Spring 2022. We will keep you informed as travel becomes possible.

In the meantime, we would like to provide a few updates:

Category 3 Test

There is an opening for the 2021 Category 3 Test, which can be scheduled for the second half of 2021. FRI Category 3 Tests are an excellent and cost-effective way to leverage your research. The sponsor of the test is entitled to ownership of the experimental data, including video and photo documentation.

Technical Advisory Committee (TAC) Meeting

The TAC meeting will be covered in three online meetings on May 5, 6 and 11. You can find registration information by clicking the button below.
