AFRL aims to link with companies, academics

The Air Force Research Laboratory will link young scientists and researchers with government agencies, academic institutions, and businesses to demonstrate AFRL and the Dayton region’s high-tech economy.

AFRL’s Business and Tech Showcase is set to launch noon to 4 p.m. Monday, March 13, at the Tec^Edge Innovation and Collaboration Center, 5000 Springfield Street.

The AFRL Junior Force Council organized the gathering to strengthen connections between the science and research agency’s young professionals headquartered at Wright-Patterson and local universities and the industrial sector in the Dayton region, according to the Air Force.

“We want to partner our newest AFRL scientists and engineers with local academics and entrepreneurs to advance our research portfolio and the commercial application of AFRL technologies,” Kevin Schmidt, AFRL Junior Council Force president, said in a statement.
