Brussels, Belgium (PRWEB) March 20, 2012
The Rothers Group has added a new service offering to its suite of services for the aerospace community worldwide. The new initiative is named “The Menlo Programme” and is aimed at finding and facilitating new ideas and innovations.
The Menlo Programme will achieve its mission in two primary ways. The first focus is on promoting exchange and synergies between research centres and between research centres and industries, closely collaborating with high-level industry leaders and universities. The Menlo Programme enables funding of and opportunities for students and research centres that would not otherwise be available, particularly in facilities with lower amounts of capital available. Secondly, the Programme is focused on funding, facilitating, and fueling independent innovative ideas from individuals or start-up companies who lack the means to move to further R&D, marketing, or production.
While focused on the aerospace industries and research initiatives, The Menlo Programme is open to supplemental industries such as nanotech, nuclear, oil and gas, and alternative energies as these will continue to impact the aerospace industry in the future. Rothers Group has successfully partnered with various supplemental industries in the past and realizes the impact value these have.
The Menlo Programme will focus on creating high-tech start-ups either based on the innovative virtues of a student or as a spin-off from a national or international research initiative. Following start-up, the Menlo Programme will continue support via business development services and professional advice as needed.
