    NIDIA Members,

    As we attempt to triple the amount of defense work in NE Indiana, an important part of the process is Research and Development – we must create an intellectual property chain to our production capability. I encourage each of you to take Dr. Hoverman up and attend this conference if you have just an itch to conduct R&D within your company. I’ve spoken with many of you and although this may not be part of your current portfolio, many of you would like it to be. As you can see the conference costs only $35 to attend – the link is below!
