Session 14A Special Case Studies for Research to Operations

Thursday, 10 January 2019: 1:30 PM-3:00 PM
North 230 (Phoenix Convention Center - West and North Buildings)
Host: Ninth Conference on Transition of Research to Operations
Thanh Vo Dinh, NOAA/NESDIS/Office of Projects, Planning and Analysis, Silver Spring, MD and Adam Steckel, NOAA/NESDIS/Office of Projects, Planning and Analysis, Silver Spring, MD

The agility and ability of the private sector to advance technology and science at rates faster than the public sector has long been a great advantage for industry. As the Weather Enterprise has evolved and companies developed their own observing and numerical modeling systems that provide tailored products and services to customers it would be ideal for public sector entities to learn of the opportunities to interact with private industry in ventures that will advance the state of the science in meteorology. This session seeks presentations that show the economic or cost benefit analysis of private and public sector partnerships advancing the weather, water, and climate enterprise. During this session, we want to hear from both industry and public sectors of examples of innovations developed in the private sector that have benefited public organizations. Univ. researchers that have done this type of economic analysis research are welcome to submit to this session as well. What’s been the model that’s made that partnership work and thrive in a highly competitive environment?
