Loveland to host NASA tech-transfer showcase
Colorado tech companies will learn how to work with NASA as well as how to scout for and share technology, according to the city. Work done by successful Colorado companies will be highlighted, as well.
One of those businesses, Scion Aviation, has participated in the city's tech-transfer initiative.
"We joined the city of Loveland's technology transfer initiative six to eight months ago and through the program, we have been able to meet others in the tech community and partner to grow business as well as enhance our relationship with NASA," Scion Aviation CEO Jim Sampson said in a statement.
The city launched its tech-transfer program last spring when it hired David Lung of DA2 Consulting.
Loveland's technology-transfer initiative helps technology companies meet and develop relationships with other businesses and space agency scientists to commercialize their innovations together, said Betsey Hale, Loveland's economic development director.
"Our Innovation and Technology Showcase takes this concept one step further by bringing all Colorado companies together with experts to have a larger discussion about technology transfer and how we can work together to grow Colorado's tech economy," Hale said.
Three executives and five technologists from NASA will attend the event, which takes place from 10:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. Wednesday at the Rocky Mountain Center for Innovation and Technology, 815 14th St. SW in Loveland.
A morning session from 10:30 a.m. to 12:15 p.m. features NASA speakers followed by lunch from 12:15 to 1:30 p.m. The innovation and technology showcase and tours of the center take place during an afternoon session from 1:30 p.m. to 4 p.m.
