Local manufacturers and their IT/cyber partners are invited to provide insights to the University of Rhode Island in preparing a Defense Manufacturing Community Support (DMCSP) grant application. These investments are designed to strengthen national security and the defense manufacturing sector.
Polaris MEP is a business unit of the University of Rhode Island Research Foundation. We are supporting URI in its grant preparation.
WE NEED YOUR INPUT!
The focus of the grant will be automation and cyber security. These are two key areas concern reported by Ocean State manufacturers in Polaris MEP’s ongoing “State of RI Manufacturing Study.”
Our first meeting to outline the grant proposal is Thursday, June 2, at 9am. A follow-up meeting would take place on June 21 at 9am.
