The US Army Research Laboratory (ARL) launched the Open Campus business model in 2014 to enhance collaboration among ARL, academic institutions, small businesses, and industry. The ARL Open Campus lays the foundation for a global science and technology (S&T) ecosystem enabling long-term national security. The joint value proposition created by Open Campus for partner researchers and institutions includes access to unique ARL facilities, Army-relevant data sets, and expertise; generation of joint intellectual property; incubation of spinoff companies for the pursuit of science and technology innovations; and maturation and rapid transition of intellectual property and technologies to the industrial marketplace. ARL is committed to a goal of having 10-15% of its research staff on rotational assignments outside of the laboratory at partner locations, with at least that number of collaborators actively participating at ARL locations. ARLs 4th Open Campus Open House will be held 18-19 October 2017 at Aberdeen Proving Ground, MD. This years Open Campus Open House is an opportunity to discuss ARLs Open Campus business model, hear details about ARLs strategic research areas, discuss collaboration and partnership opportunities with ARLs scientists and engineers, and tour many of ARLs specialized laboratory facilities. New this year is the opportunity to engage with regional leaders from ARLs extended sites, including a Partner Panel that includes Lockheed Martin, Per Vivo Labs, Lehigh University, and UMass Amherst. Keynote speakers are Mr. Rickey E. Smith, U.S. Army Training & Doctrine Command, on October 18th and SEN Christopher Van Hollen Jr. on October 19th. Of particular note are lab tours and demonstrations from ARLs Human Sciences, Computational Science, Materials Research, Sciences for Lethality and Protection, and Sciences for Maneuver Campaigns. Highlights from these tours include: Stress effects on Soldier performance, high performance computing demos, additive manufacturing, and advances in materials, propulsion, and autonomy.
