TECH WEEK Virtual Tour


THANK YOU for joining us for OCP TECH WEEK! The on-demand content from all sessions is now available on the virtual platform.

We would like to thank all our sponsors, volunteer leaders, and OCP Community for making this event such a success.



OCP TECH WEEK was four days packed with Engineering Workshops held during various time zones to allow for global participation. These were not typical lecture presentations, but live sessions -  allowing plenty of time for interactive collaboration! Given the great momentum and response from our Virtual Summit in May, OCP provided this virtual forum to share the following:

  • A look back at our 2019/2020 Key Accomplishments and Strategic Actions
  • A sneak peak at our 2021 Technology Initiatives (from our Community’s perspective) and how OCP will address these future trends
  • Announcements on new Contributions Requirements and changes to Recognition Programs for Facilities/Products
  • Technical deep dives packed with interactive discussions on OCP Project activity
