Shared Research Space in Dayton Promotes Tech Transfer From Air Force Lab

first_img Dan Cohen AUTHOR A newly created collaborative workspace in downtown Dayton, Ohio, is opening up new avenues for the civilian research community and commercial sector to interact with scientists at the Air Force Research Laboratory, driving innovation and technology commercialization in the pursuit of new applications by the Air Force and regional economic growth. The initiative’s partners — AFRL, which is headquartered at Wright-Patterson AFB; the Wright Brothers Institute, a nonprofit partner of the Lab whose primary aim is to promote technology transfer; and the Dayton region’s economic development community — established Project 444 within the city’s nascent innovation district to leverage the region’s research assets and take advantage of non-traditional partners.A case study about Project 444 will be featured as one of six “Innovators” at Installation Innovation 2018 in San Diego from Feb. 12-14.
