VLab Forum

Purpose

Research and innovation are the lifeblood of NWS operations. To ensure this essential elixir continues to flow, the Virtual Lab (VLab) Support Team (VLST) hosts a forum each month to showcase potential transition projects. During the forum, a subject matter expert gives a talk on a project which is followed by a lively discussion on the project's implications for NWS operations. Participants can attend forums remotely using GoToWebinar or in person in Building 2 of the Silver Spring Metro Complex. To sign up to receive meeting announcements, please email the VLST at NWS.VLab.Admins@noaa.gov.

The success of the VLab Forum in supporting the research to operations transition process has been assessed using an on-line survey. You can view the results of the survey for the indicated years at the following links:
