New Economy New Rules: Growing Indiana's Defense Industry Through Technology
What: New Economy New Rules: Defense - Growing Indiana's Defense Industry Through Technology
When: Oct. 4, 2013 | 8:00 a.m. (ET) Registration and Continental Breakfast | 8:30 a.m. to 9:30 a.m. (ET) Presentation
As the United States endures another fiscal cliff and probable continuing resolution, calls for cutting the defense budget are once again making national headlines. Simultaneously, state leaders have built initiatives that seek to increase Indiana's share of defense technology exports.
According to USAspending.gov, government contracts awarded to Indiana firms, which are almost entirely defense-related, totaled $6.3 billion in 2012, so it's understandable that state leaders would emphasize the need for more defense technology focused economic development efforts.
Join us Oct. 4, 2013 for insights from our featured guests on what Indiana is doing and why, what technologies are being developed, and discussion about how Indiana can marshall its existing resources -- like experienced defense tech talent, clusters of defense tech firms, and leading research universities -- to help grow defense technology in the state.
- Indiana Lt. Governor Sue Ellspermann
- John Dement, ORTA/Technology Transfer Manager, NAVSEA Crane Warfare Center Division
- Moderated by Allison Barber, Chancellor, WGU Indiana / Former Deputy Assistant Secretary of Defense for the United States
