Pfeiffer University's Center for Digital Transformation (CDT) has hired a new consultant to expand the university’s impact in the energy and water industries.
Vincent Caprio, Director and Founder of the Water Innovations Alliance Foundation, will provide Pfeiffer’s CDT with the insight and connections necessary to identify technology-based solution opportunities in these exciting fields.
"Vincent is exceptionally well-versed in a broad spectrum of emerging technologies that impact our country's energy and water infrastructure," said Dr. Ken Russell, Pfeiffer Vice President for Digital Transformation and CDT Director. "He understands the dynamic role technology can play in solving current problems as well as how market-driven technology solutions can provide keen insight into future trends."
Caprio, who Keynoted at the Water 2.0 Conference held at Pfeiffer in September and will be presenting at the upcoming conference in Raleigh on May 17th, has produced 20 Water 2.0 conferences during the last 10 years. Caprio has been a noted speaker at numerous emerging technology conferences throughout America over the past two decades. He has testified before the EPA and OSTP and has contributed to several business publications dedicated to bringing effective solutions to the municipal water industry in order to help utilities work smarter and upgrade systems efficiently.
"I am thrilled to become part Pfeiffer’s CDT team and to collaborate on finding innovative solutions to difficult challenges," said Caprio.
“Having been an association leader for years in both the water and energy sectors, I know the challenges facing the nation's water infrastructure are extremely difficult and these sectors will greatly benefit from CDT’s strategy to promote a practical approach to solving such complex technology problems."
The Center for Digital Transformation promotes a practical approach to solving complex technology problems. CDT is focused on building strong partnerships and providing applied and experiential learning opportunities for students while transforming the way the educational experience is developed, packaged, delivered and supported.
