The Office of Naval Research (ONR) hosted its biennial Naval Science and Technology Expo in February, where over 2,500 representatives from government, industry, and academia gathered to discuss key ONR programs and new research opportunities.
Six faculty members from the University of Tennessee were among those in attendance. Most of them were invited to meet with ONR program managers to present ideas for future research projects. In addition to engaging program managers one-on-one, faculty also received information about the direction of various ONR research programs, including key scientific challenges.
One-page fact sheets about each program are listed below. PIs are encouraged to review these and contact the designated point of contact if they have an idea for a project to address a particular challenge.
Contact Paul Montgomery, director of Federal Relations in the Office of Research and Engagement, for assistance.
