2010 Independent Research and Development Presentations

Image - Partnership ConferenceThe Naval Research Enterprise met with companies at the 2010 ONR Naval Science & Technology Partnership Conference to learn more about their Independent Research and Development (IR&D) programs. These presentations were designed to provide the government with a better understanding of where industry’s limited research investments are currently being focused.

In 45-minute sessions, presenters discussed current IR&D-funded initiatives being pursued within their companies, with a proposed emphasis on the 2010 ONR Naval Science and Technology Partnership Conference's key themes. Only government personnel — and nongovernment personnel with specific invitations — attended.
