NASA will offer an industry day and networking event focused on collaboration opportunities with local businesses on September 23, at the University of Scranton’s DeNaples Center. NASA Northeast Pennsylvania Industry Day will include national and local speakers, presentations and networking opportunities in collaboration with the Keystone Space Collaborative, Northeastern Pennsylvania Industrial Resource Center, and Northeastern Pennsylvania Alliance Procurement Technical Assistance Center.
The event was announced by Rep. Matt Cartwright, who chairs the Commerce-Justice-Science Appropriations Subcommittee, which funds NASA.
“I look forward to helping our local businesses work with NASA on advancing America’s world-leading space exploration program,” he said.
Local business owners, manufacturers, entrepreneurs, and university representatives are encouraged to attend the free event. Registration is required.
During the event’s one-on-one networking sessions, participants will be paired with multiple “buyers” from government and industry relevant to their company’s offerings. The meetings will also provide attendees with government contract advice and guidance on how to work with NASA and other aerospace contractors.
“Collaboration with businesses is a cornerstone of NASA’s technology development and exploration work,” said NASA Administrator Bill Nelson. “We look forward to connecting with the innovators of northeast Pennsylvania and sharing information about opportunities to work with NASA.”
