On Friday, November 17, 2017 Notre Dame Research will host the biannual Navy Research Forum with the Office of Naval Research (ONR). Interested faculty and graduate students are invited to attend the event, which will take place at the Morris Inn. The forum will offer a luncheon and a keynote address by ONR Executive Director Walter F. Jones.

Robert J. Bernhard, the Vice President for Research and Professor of Aerospace and Mechanical Engineering, will welcome attendees and provide an overview of Notre Dame Research before the keynote address. Once underway, Jones will present ONR’s strategic research priorities for the coming years and answer audience questions afterward.

Associate Vice President for Research and Professor of Computer Science and Engineering Richard E. Billo is organizing the event on behalf of Notre Dame Research. Speaking about the biannual forum, he said, “This event will offer faculty from all Colleges and Schools, but especially those in Science and Engineering, a rare chance to hear directly from ONR’s leadership and gain insight into their future research goals. I encourage our faculty to attend so that they may discover new ONR research opportunities.”

Faculty are welcome to valet or self-park at the Morris Inn, with the luncheon beginning at 12:30 at Salon B and C. If you are interested in learning more about the forum or to RSVP, please contact Nancy Chapleau, office and event coordinator.
