Introducing Dunkworks – December 2017 First Friday

December 1 @ 7:30 am - 9:00 am

Leslie-Ann McGee, from the Center for Marine Robotics at the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution will introduce us to Dunkworks.

Funded by a robotics cluster grant from the Massachusetts Technology Collaborative, DunkWorks opened in June 2017 on the Village Campus of the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution.  Working with the marine robotics cluster in the region, DunkWorks greatly accelerates the ability to take ideas from concepts to tested devices ready for application in the ocean through a collaborative facility that integrates new technologies, create prototype devices, and test them prior to deployment in or around the ocean. The goals are threefold:

• Create an integrated and interdisciplinary community of Blue Economy technologists that focuses on increased communication, critical thinking, collaboration and creativity.

• Accelerate the process of innovation by creating an environment and associated coaching to fail fast and fail cheaply so as to speed up useful and transformative advancements.

• Produce useful advancements in marine robotics that in turn grow the cluster including investment, output, revenues and jobs.
