Forum: June 21, 2018

Topic: “The Future of the Air Force’s Science and Technology Strategy”

In September 2017, Secretary of the U.S. Air Force Heather Wilson launched an initiative to update the Air Force’s science and technology strategy. Over the course of a year, the Air Force will listen and learn from the scientific community, higher education and business professionals through a series of conversations and outreach events.  This meeting of Columbus Futurists will be such a listen and learn session, with John Russell–Technical Director in the Manufacturing and Industrial Technologies Division of the Air Force Research Laboratory– seeking ideas and insights from our members.
