  • Industry Partnerships — ANTHC & ACEP

ACEP and the Alaska Native Tribal Health Consortium worked together this summer to develop a new shared vision to tackle energy, food and water security challenges facing Alaska communities. Infrastructure, transportation, climate, education, human capacity, communications and funding sources all directly impact the quality of these services that are essential for everyday life throughout Alaska.
Using support from the Office of Naval Research and the Alaska Regional Collaboration for Technology Innovation and Commercialization program, ACEP and ANTHC are developing a set of specific projects to partner on. They will focus on addressing specific community challenges where they see the opportunity to develop valuable approaches and technologies that can be replicated within Alaska and exported elsewhere.
