LETN was founded by Lehigh University in 2004, comprising a diverse group of business, education, government, economic development, and services/consulting members. We bring members together to learn about applications, research, funding opportunities, and educational initiatives, and to advance the understanding, development, and commercialization of novel materials technology. The LETN also supports education and outreach for student development.
