Part 3 - Office of Economic Adjustment (OEA) - Human Performance Enhancement

  • WBI Tec^Edge 5000 Springfield Street Dayton, OH, 45431 United States

SAVE THE DATE: On September 13, WBI will be hosting its 3rd OEA Collider Event, this time on the topic of Human Performance Enhancement. Please block your calendars from 1:30 till 3:30 and plan to join us to learn more about the opportunities within this massive market space.

For the purposes of this project, we’re defining Human Performance Enhancement like this:

As the world becomes more complex, the demands on human performance continue to increase. Athletic endeavors, military requirements, continuing independence into one’s later years are all examples of market-driven needs for human performance enhancement. Strength, speed, endurance, vigilance, multi-tasking, mental-acuity, and recovery are all enhancement opportunities of interest. Formal evaluation of blue papers will begin on approximately 17 October 2016.

Wright Brothers Institute continues to work diligently on our pilot project to refine a commercialization process for regional innovators. In March we had an OEA Collider event focused on the Precision Agriculture market which has resulted in 8 Blue Paper submissions and 2 on-going projects to commercialize several of the concepts explained in those blue papers. We’re making significant progress toward providing real market solutions with a combination of several innovative technologies!

In June we had an OEA Collider event focused on the Electric Energy market which has resulted in 6 Blue Paper submissions to date. NEXT WEEK we’ll begin evaluating those blue paper concepts for potential aggregated commercialization opportunities – ITS NOT TOO LATE to submit your innovative ideas.
