Registration open for Military Innovation Operational Forum

By Staff Report, posted 3 weeks ago

The Military Innovation Operational (MIO)-Forum is coming up on Dec. 7. The event will begin at 9 a.m. at the Fayetteville Technical Community College’s Tony Rand Student Center.

The MIO-Forum is a collaboration between Womack Army Medical Center (WAMC), Fort Liberty, NC; the North Carolina Military Business Center; the North Carolina Defense Transition Office (DEFTECH); and Fayetteville Technical Community College (FTCC).  The purpose of the event is to forge collaborations between WAMC and academia, industry and military partners to yield actionable results, including joint submissions for federal grant funding. 

The goal is to increase the success rate of grant applications by informing partners of the types of high-yield research proposals. This forum will bring together subject matter experts (SMEs) with years of research and grant experience to discuss research opportunities within the areas of behavioral health, traumatic brain injury, prolonged field care, automation, human performance, musculoskeletal injuries, large observational data, pain and others. The key component of the MIO-Forum will be the opportunity for attendees to rotate between tables hosted by an SME. 

Following the MIO-Forum, industry, academic, and military partners may submit research proposals to Womack Army Medical Center (WAMC) by March 8, 2024. WAMC will review all proposals and respond to submitters within 45 days.
