The University of Connecticut has received an $8 million contract from the Air Force Research Laboratory (AFRL) to continue productive research aimed at improving aerospace manufacturing processes.
“This is wonderful news for the UConn Tech Park and our researchers,” says UConn President Thomas Katsouleas. “It’s a concrete demonstration of the value UConn brings to our industry partners, to our state, and to the greater pursuit of knowledge. I’m looking forward to the successes generated by this research, and to many more in the future.”
Because of the progress UConn made in the past two years, the AFRL eagerly elected to continue their funding through 2023. This iteration of the project will support 16 UConn faculty, 21 graduate students and one postdoctoral researcher.
