The purpose of the Ohio Federal Research Network (OFRN) is to organize research initiatives within Ohio’s university system and Ohio’s four federal labs (AFRL, NAMRU-D, NASA GRC, NASIC) to grow Ohio’ s research talent base, attract outside public and private investment, and retain and create new jobs.
Central to this mission are Centers of Excellence (COE); six centers have been established with funding for research projects with high commercialization potential. One such center is the Materials & Advanced Manufacturing Center of Excellence.
On November 10, manufacturers are invited to an event at TechSolve in Cincinnati to learn more about the OFRN resources and opportunities. The keynote speaker is Dr. Ajay Misra, Chief, Materials and Structures Division at NASA Glenn Research Center, who will share thoughts on the importance of the Ohio Federal Research Network and “what’s in it for you.”
