The EDC and RTC organize presentation by Commander of Naval Research Laboratory
The EDC and the RTC hosted Capt Paul Stewart, Director of the Naval Research laboratory ("NRL"), last Thursday for a presentation to area businesses and academic researchers about the NRL and its broad range of research and collaborative partnerships. The meeting provided an opportunity to learn more about how the NRL conducts its research efforts and examples of how technology transfer has impacted private industry. The discussion offered Western MA business and academia a glimpse at how they can form new partnerships and collaborations with the NRL. During his visit, Capt Stewart met with four researchers and private companies who had submitted concept papers for possible collaborations and set the stage for more submissions to follow. The EDC views this presentation as the beginning of further discussions with the NRL on ways academic researchers and private industry can work together for their mutual benefit.
