The Naval Postgraduate School (NPS) continues to showcase its exceptional research capacity via the next Naval Research Working Group (NRWG), April 21-23, 2020. However, per current COVID-19 guidance, NRWG 20 will be executed by the Naval Research Program as an entirely virtual event

The NRWG is an essential element in the success of the NPS Naval Research Program, as envisioned by the Secretary of the Navy. It serves as a forum for Navy and Marine organizations to communicate, review, validate, and recommend topics for NPS research annually. Now in its 7th year, the NRWG is an excellent annual opportunity for the Navy and Marine Corps to effectively leverage NPS faculty expertise and student operational experience as valuable research assets. Funding for FY21 is proposed to be approximately $11 million.

Join the conversation NOW and REGISTER for NRWG 20 at: where you’ll find instructions on how to download the Whova event app required to sign up for individual sessions and join ongoing conversations with Topic Sponsors.

All Research Sponsors, NPS faculty and students are invited and encouraged to participate.
