A federal program is giving companies from northwest Ohio and southeast Michigan a chance to get free, confidential research and development insight directly from NASA experts. The Blade in Toledo reports engineers and technical specialists from Glenn Research Center in Cleveland will consult with participants and may share declassified technology used by the space agency. Businesses have until Wednesday to apply for the June 12 event at the University of Toledo. It is part of the "NASA Roadshow" program, which started with a December event where scientists met with several companies at Youngstown State University.
A Glenn Research Center official says the program helps boost support for research and development at NASA and for the benefits its research provides for others beyond the space agency.
