 9 - 10 
View Map


This webinar will cover issues concerning industrial / scientific labs describing the differences between manufacturing and scientific labs.

It will also discuss how management relates to the labs and the types of products they produce.

It will describe how the types and productivity of the labs will fare in the coming age of technology, artificial intelligence and autonomy varies.

Describe how one does a cold start, starting a lab from nothing.

Advanced research and Labs overlap but they are not quite the same thing.

How your Lab Advanced Research people will relate to researchers within the U.S. and Internationally.

Teaming with other Labs Research organizations.

How do research projects get formed?

Who decides what topics are the most important nationally?

How do the National Academes / National Research Councils, National Labs, Military Labs, Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA), Defense Threat Reduction Agency (DTRA), NASA, University Space Research Associations and universities work together to accomplish research?

What is the difference between pure and applied research.

Which one is more profitable in the long run?

What should be the funding ratio between the two?

How does Advanced Engineering relate to regular Engineering and Software Tools?

What are the indications that an advanced engineering / Research organization is performing sub optimally?

What does disruptive technology mean to managers, researchers, favored researchers.

Who does the project prioritizing, funding?

That does their final listing mean?

What are source evaluation and selection boards? How is maximum research productivity achieved?

What is the purpose of the Lab? What should you expect from your researchers?

What is a backlog?

Is the current state of technology ready for another push?

What are the current research opportunities?

What tools will your researchers need and how do you access them?

How do you keep your researchers up to speed technically?
