Submit An Event


At its core, a logic model is a visual representation of a project’s activities and intended outcomes. But it’s much more than an illustration; your logic model has many uses in and beyond your ATE proposal. This webinar will help you take your logic model to the next level. We will demonstrate how logic models illuminate projects’ underlying logic and assumptions, how they can be used to structure evaluation plans, and how they can build a collective understanding of project outcomes across stakeholder groups. You will learn how, far beyond fulfilling a proposal requirement, your logic model can be an active evaluation tool that offers benefits throughout the life of your project.

In this webinar, participants will learn (a) how to create an effective logic model and (b) how to put that logic model to use for your project and your evaluation.

As the world of E-mobility continues to rapidly evolve, robust sealing solutions remain critical for high-performance operation and extended service life. One such area where the challenges of sealing involve more than just perimeter length is battery housings. Manufacturers must consider the right materials while creating the correct gasket configuration that works with the components used for the battery housing. The seal must prevent the intrusion of dust, dirt, salt, and water while simultaneously helping to contain any thermal event arising from the contents of the housing. Additionally, these gasket designs must be certified to specific application conditions and be produced consistently to perform exactly as designed. This 60-minute Webinar reviews the challenges associated with battery housing sealing used in electric mobility and provides guidance about the critical factors that must be considered in every sourcing decision.
