  Mission - The Naval Research Working Group (NRWG) Meeting is a forum for Research Topic Sponsors to communicate their research and analysis needs directly to NPS faculty and students. In-progress Reviews (IPRs) are also conducted.

 Intent - Provide a single, standard mechanism that allows the Navy and Marine Corps to interface and leverage a cost efficient organic research asset.

 End State - A systematic, repeatable, and enduring partnership to support Navy and Marine Corps research objectives and make NPS research directly relevant to the Warfighter.

 Working Group Input

Topic Sponsor and NPS faculty research needs.

 Working Group Output


Virtual Breakout Sessions: Breakout sessions provide settings where individual faculty or students can meet with Topic Sponsors to discuss topic requirements, begin writing IREFs, or stage IPRs of existing research. The ability to initiate topic dialogue is essential for understanding the challenges that organizations face and developing useful proposals to address them. Individuals manage their own break-out session schedules.
