The purpose of the Ohio Federal Research Network (OFRN) is to organize and resource collaborative research initiatives within the University System of Ohio that align with and support priority mission requirements at Ohio’s four federal labs (AFRL, NAMRU-D, NASA GRC, NASIC), in an effort to grow our research talent base, attract outside public and private investment, and retain and create new jobs in Ohio, via mutually-beneficial partnerships with industry on all funded initiatives.
Central to this mission are our Centers of Excellence (COE). Six COEs have been established to date, and funding allocated for aligned research projects with high commercialization potential. This event will introduce you to our Materials & Advanced Manufacturing and Propulsion & Power COEs via an informative and business-focused agenda.
Also on the agenda is an overview of the Ohio Federal Research Network, and an industry-led panel discussion of how technology development within the OFRN network offers growth opportunities for your business. There is no charge for this event, which includes a light lunch, along with post-event networking and appetizers.
