The Scripps Technical Forum (STF) is a grassroots effort to make technical expertise and resources more widely available within the UCSD/Scripps community; to enhance communications between technical staff and departments; explore extended opportunities for interdepartmental collaboration, technology transfer, and industry interactions; to explore innovative solutions to emerging challenges; to monitor and disseminate trends and new technologies; and, aid in personnel retention and enhance job satisfaction, including continuing education, and opportunities for job growth.

The group is open to anyone within SIO and UCSD interested in applied technology. We host a semi-monthly midday meeting with free food and an interesting program of presentations given by members of the community and industry.
