Empire State Development’s Division of Science, Technology & Innovation (NYSTAR) will be holding a match-maker style event, where defense focused manufacturing organizations meet directly with hand-picked business and technology experts in one-on-one consultations. Attendees will be given the opportunity to meet with and learn about the expertise offered by such resources and see how this could fit into their diversification ideas and plans. Companies are encouraged to collaborate with these resources on diversification projects and talk about the potential support for the completion of such projects.
