This free, daylong event will bring together professors, students, engineers, technologists and business leaders from around Florida to engage on NASA’s current and future space technology activities and the agency’s plans for exploring the Moon, Mars and beyond.

NASA’s Acting Space Technology Mission Directorate Associate Administrator Jim Reuter will offer an opening address at 8:45 a.m. NASA Associate Administrator Steve Jurczyk has been invited to give an afternoon keynote address from 1:30-2 p.m.

Both presentations will take place in the Hartley Room on the second floor of the university’s Denius Student Center.

Technical presentations by NASA personnel from 9:15 a.m. until 12 noon will focus on advanced materials, robotics and autonomy, power and propulsion, and advanced manufacturing.

The afternoon program concentrates on NASA research grant programs and small business opportunities, followed by breakout-discussion groups aligned with the morning’s technical disciplines.

The purpose of the face-to-face event is to:

  • Provide guidance about the NASA research proposal process in order to increase competitiveness.
  • Connect NASA leadership to leading academic and commercial research and development capabilities.
  • Expose attendees to NASA’s strategic technology investments that are paving the way for American leadership in the exploration of the Moon, Mars and beyond.
  • Forge new collaborations with colleagues at regional institutions and commercial entities.

Limited travel-assistance awards are available, with preference to attendees from minority-serving institutions.

Prospective attendees seeking additional information are encouraged to contact the Florida Tech Office of Research at 321-674-7723 or email Tristan Fiedler at fiedler@fit.edu
