During the 2014 SunShot Grand Challenge Summit and Peer Review, the SunShot Initiative will once again host a Technology Forum to highlight SunShot-funded projects and awardees through posters and technology exhibits. Additionally this year, SunShot will conduct Portfolio Review that includes all active SunShot projects. To fulfill the requirements of the Portfolio Review, each SunShot awardee will be required to submit a poster that details the award and to have a project team member available at the Summit to answer reviewer questions.
