The Innovation Enterprise 2010 Conference, to be held in Macon GA in November will bring together inventors, prototype makers, manufacturers and the military to find solutions for the military and commercial markets. The organizer of the conference, the NNMC, has a government OTA contract to find and develop solutions for the military, and will use this conference to show attendees how they can work with the NNMC to develop inventions into production. Working under the NNMC’s OTA contract eliminates most of the management normally associated with government contracts.
Jim Marshall represents Georgia's 8th Congressional District. He serves on the House Armed Services and Agriculture Committees and previously served on the Financial Services Committee. He is widely recognized as an expert on military matters, having visited our troops in Iraq and Afghanistan fifteen times.
Jim is well-accepted in Pentagon circles and is a frequent writer, lecturer and national television commentator on military matters. Jim works hard to reflect the values and advance the interests of Georgia and our Nation. He works well with both Democrats and Republicans.
The Innovation Enterprise 2010 Conference will highlight a unique opportunity for inventors, prototype makers and manufacturers to work together to develop much-needed solutions for the military.
Traditionally, working with the government often meant long delays plus a considerable amount of time and money devoted to management of the government contract. However the NNMC works with both the government and the private sector to significantly reduce the paperwork and time normally associated with developing solutions for the military. This frees the inventors and companies to concentrate on what they do best.
This entire program, along with current case studies, will be presented during the conference.
The Conference is all about making contacts that lead to contracts.
Commercial technology seekers are also encouraged to come to the conference because the military has technologies that it wants to share with the commercial sector.
It has been shown that in many cases, the same technology can be used in both the military and commercial sectors. In what is known as the "Dual Use" program, the military is able to increase the effectiveness of its R&D budget by encouraging development with the commercial sector. Inventors will be given VIP treatment with the opportunity to showcase their inventions in the Poster Gallery that will run concurrently with the conference. Service Providers will also be able to showcase their capabilities in the Poster Gallery.
The Innovation Enterprise 2010 Conference will be held at the Macon Marriott City Center from November 15 – 17, 2010. Special discount hotel accommodation is available for all attendees.
