Join OCEAN and the SouthCoast Development Partnership, for a virtual “Dockside Chat” on driving economic development by fostering meaningful collaborations amongst industry, government, and academia. In particular, we will discuss how to grow the regional blue economy by focusing on foundational research, workforce development, and technology commercialization. We will hear from Dr. Richard Carlson, Director of the Office of Naval Research, Naval Accelerator on creating a framework for collaboration between naval warfare centers, academia, and industry—to speed up technology development and application.
We will then hear from regional leaders who are active participants in the local defense-related innovation ecosystem who will highlight opportunities to engage in efforts that support startups, train the workforce, and drive innovation.
