ONR Powers Partnerships in Asia-Pacific
As President Barack Obama begins a trip to Asia to coordinate with allies and reconfirm America’s strategic pivot to the Pacific, the Office of Naval Research is pushing forward with the Asia-Pacific Technology and Education Partnership, or APTEP, an example of strong ties between the United States and its allies in the region.
The APTEP program, centered in Hawaii with partnerships across the Asia-Pacific region, supports the development of alternative energy technologies.
