Workshop at The Pointe, CSULB
CCDoTT Technology Transition and Outreach efforts include hosting regional conferences and workshops with the goal of reaching end users who can develop products or processes aimed at improving commercial competitiveness and military capability.
The East Coast Conference, named “CCDoTT Program Review”, provides the opportunity for the principals of CCDoTT projects underway to brief partners, academia, military and government representatives. It allows the potential to expand support for projects, gain feedback on processes and results from interested stakeholders and potential end users, and contact experts in areas aligned with the project areas. Attended by roughly 50 participants, the East Coast Conference represents an excellent cross section of the R&D community and the industries, military and government organizations it supports.
CCDoTT’s West Coast Conference, known as “IMPACT” Innovative Maritime Partnerships Advancing Cargo Transport, provides the opportunity to brief partners, academia, Port representatives, business interests, labor, military, and government officials. Attended by well over 100 participants, IMPACT allows the potential to expand local support for projects, gain feedback on processes and results from interested stakeholders and potential end users, and contact experts in areas aligned with the project areas.
Initiated in 2003, the IMPACT conference has broadened its role to where it reaches out beyond a military focus to include a more significant role within the Southern California Ports of Los Angeles and Long Beach. An extensive outreach campaign is conducted in conjunction with the conference specifically targeted to State and local commercial and government interests in order to introduce CCDoTT’s program of technologies and obtain feedback on how CCDoTT technologies might be implemented to improve maritime transportation and goods movement for the local area and along the entire West Coast.
