Part 2 - Office of Economic Adjustment (OEA) - Energy Market

  • Tec^Edge 5000 Springfield Street Dayton, OH, 45431 United States (map)

Join Wright Brothers Institute for the launch of the second project in the Market-Pull Commercialization pilot of the Dayton Metro Plan for Economic Diversity project, funded by DoD’s Office of Economic Adjustment (OEA).

This Collider event will share with technology developers how they can engage with WBI on its second project, which focuses on the energy market. Small businesses, large businesses, university researchers, entrepreneurs and other area technology developers are invited to share ideas or capabilities that can be applied to the energy market.

The WBI process identifies viable concepts built from multiple capabilities and works alongside project teams to take these projects to market. The Market-Pull Commercialization Model aims to reduce the risk for technologists and investors, while providing commercial opportunities for the region’s extensive R&D assets and for federal laboratories, particularly AFRL.

WBI kicked off the pilot by engaging technology developers in an opportunity around precision agriculture, which brought multiple blue papers. The WBI team is currently pulling these technologies into concepts that increase their market value for submitters. Future market areas will be Human Performance and Environmental Monitoring.
