The Glenn Alliance for Technology Exchange (GATE) will present four Ohio-based companies with the GATE Partnership Award on Monday, Dec. 5, at 2 p.m. at the Ohio Aerospace Institute, 22800 Cedar Point Road, Cleveland.
The GATE Partnership Award Program targets small Ohio companies interested in enhancing their products and processes with NASA technologies. GATE sought proposals from small Ohio companies that had identified NASA technologies or expertise that could be instrumental in developing new products or processes. Twenty-six proposals were submitted from all over Ohio and four were selected for awards of $100,000 each. The award consists of $50,000 in cash plus $50,000 in NASA assistance in developing the new product or process.
GATE, established in 2004, is a collaboration of NASA's Glenn Research Center, Ohio Aerospace Institute and Battelle's Great Lakes Industrial Technology Center. Through the transfer of NASA Glenn technologies, GATE's programmatic activities forge additional partnerships with industry that increase economic benefits to Ohio companies.
