SMART Event Summary

Events Background:  

The SMART organization; in conjunction with Congress, the Federal Executive Branch HQ Agencies, our International Allies and senior State officials conducts a variety of general and focused Science & Technology events throughout the Mid-Atlantic region for the technical community.

Since 1999, we have conducted 300 significant events, supported by many working sessions among our 15 Focus Groups and 3 Committees.

The overarching purpose of SMART events is to support collaborative efforts towards funded project execution. SMART events can also be a platform for addressing cutting edge technology issues related to regulatory and funding legislation.

SMART priorities are defined by annual, individual State-wide meetings in Delaware, Maryland, New Jersey and Pennsylvania to identify States' priorities and then followed by winter and summer Capitol Hill Forums with the Congressional leaders to determine the regional priorities. 


SMART Advantage

The SMART Congressional initiative is the integration of regional Science & Technology activities for issues, events & projects among the SMART Congressional Delegation (8 Senators and 39 Representatives of DE, MD, NJ & PA), the Federal Executive Branch DC HQs, our International Allies, the four State governments (Executive & Legislative branches) and the regional technical, economic development and education/workforce development communities. The SMART Not For Profit membership company was formed to execute the vision of this initiative. SMART membership is composed of academia, businesses, government labs/field agencies and professional associations. The SMART membership will continue to execute the daily actions of SMART via 15 focus groups. SMART is a national model for regional actions; SMART has members and participation from across the nation. Further, SMART is extremely active with our International Allies.

Since 1999, SMART has conducted 292 significant events, addressed numerous case studies and facilitated $624M in direct SMART projects and $1.2B in indirect projects. Contact Executive Director Robert Carullo at or 609-304-2904.
