The Radiation Technologies event will be held at the NASA Johnson Space Center, a TCC Full Member organization, scheduled for 8AM to 4PM.


This event will bring together organizations needing or developing new radiation-related technologies – covering radiation detection, protection, and use of radiation for applications.  The event will include presentations on the latest technology advances and unmet challenges, in a format providing an opportunity for participants to network and explore potential partnerships.

Any organization can request to make a presentation at the event, if presentation slots are available.

Register at tcc-houston.org or by sending an e-mail to events@tcc-houston.org.  All event participants are required to register prior to the event.  Details on the event agenda and location will be provided to registered attendees, within a week of the event.

Event tickets are $25 for TCC members, and $50 for non-members.  Registration and payment is online through the TCC’s website.  Member discounted tickets are available up until noon, September 16; members will be charged $50 per ticket after that.
