ONR Global Visit to UPRM

Admin Announcements

To all faculty and administrators,

Vicky Rahamatali, from the Office of Naval Research Global, will visit our campus on Tuesday, August 29, 2017 to provide information to our faculty about their programs, with a special focus on the ONR Science Director Program. There will be a session for investigators at 10:30 AM in the R&D Center Main Building (CID-123), and another for university administrators at 1:30 PM in the same room.

The Science Director Program employs technically skilled scientists and engineers to enhance the international science and technology (S&T) engagement of the Navy and to increase the Navy ́s awareness of global technology. The technical staff, known as Science Directors – typically scientists with doctorates working across government, academia and industry – work out of offices around the world to scout technologies for ONR and the Naval Research Enterprise (NRE).

A Science Director completes a two- to four-year tour in which he/she visits international S&T institutions to develop access and find cutting-edge science and technology, assesses international innovation in areas of naval interest, provides global technical assessment, follows trends in science and technology, and tracks technological development in specific geographical areas. The Science Director recommends innovative researchers to be awarded research grants.
