NASA Partners with IndustryWeek to Promote Tech Transfer and Innovation


Space agency enlists manufacturing and supply chain information leader to help maximize ROI in Cleveland "Technology Days"

CLEVELAND--Nov. 8, 2012:  The National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA), has enlisted IndustryWeek, the leading source of business information and insight for manufacturing industry professionals, to help encourage industry and stakeholders to participate in its "Technology Days" event this month in Cleveland, and accelerate commercialization of the agency's most promising new innovations.

Because "technology transfer" is part of NASA's charter, since it was established in 1958 the agency has spun-off and transferred thousands of technologies discovered in pursuit of space exploration for applications on Earth. The goal of the Technology Days event (November 28-30 at Cleveland Public Auditorium) is to raise awareness of how NASA leverages its investment in space exploration, science and aeronautics to address national priorities, and introduce the agency as a business development partner that can help make American companies more competitive.

The three-day agenda blends exhibits, presentations and networking forums to promote professional education and collaboration.

IndustryWeek was selected for its access to customers and prospects in target NASA technology markets such as automotive, advanced energy, innovative manufacturing and human health. The assignment will capitalize on the full spectrum of IndustryWeek information products and services to promote the event, with an emphasis on audiences in the Midwestern United States.

"Our team is tremendously proud to partner with NASA on this important national initiative to help America protect and extend its global innovation advantage," said John DiPaola, market leader of Penton Media's Manufacturing and Supply Chain Group. "Our unique access to the nation's manufacturing business owners and decision-makers makes IndustryWeek the perfect partner to help NASA promote and develop Technology Days."
