Emerging technologies a focus of Nevada event

U.S. Sen. Catherine Cortez Masto hosted a roundtable to discuss how Nevada can integrate technology in transportation, service delivery, housing and other sectors, as well as workforce development.

“It’s crucial that we build on the momentum Nevada currently has in advancing technology and innovation in the state,” Cortez Masto said.

At last week’s event, Cortez Masto toured the Applied Technology Center at Truckee Meadows Community College in Reno and learned about specialized programs in Nevada focused on emerging technologies.

She also touted several bills she introduced in the Senate to advance her Innovation State Initiative and her efforts to strengthen Nevada’s leadership in technology.

“We must continue to invest in smart growth and make sure we are preparing young Nevadans for success in the tech industry,” Cortez Masto said. “It’s exciting to hear what Nevada cities are doing to transition into SMART cities and how local businesses are playing a part in creating jobs and diversifying Nevada’s economy.”

Attendees of the roundtable included the Desert Research Institute and Switch.
