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 monthly midday meeting with free pizza and an interesting program of presentations given by members of the community and industry. Our monthly newsletter highlights events, people, places, and items.
