As a part of a planned Cleveland visit from NASA Administrator Jim Bridenstine, GCP collaborated with NASA Glenn Research Center and Congresswoman Marcy Kaptur’s office on a Northeast Ohio business roundtable. The goal of the event was to hear the latest on NASA’s plans for the Artemis mission and discuss the role Northeast Ohio businesses can and will play in making it a reality.

Administrator Bridenstine was joined by Congresswoman Kaptur and Senator Rob Portman for a full day tour and briefings at Lewis Field and Plum Brook Station. The business roundtable, which took place at Plum Brook, included discussion on the need to attract and grow businesses in Ohio that can advance NASA’s missions. This would also support a talent attraction strategy to ensure more highly skilled young people saw the region as an ideal place to live and work.

“We commend Congresswoman Kaptur, Senator Portman, and the entire delegation for their continued support of NASA Glenn,” said Joe Roman, President and CEO of GCP. “NASA Glenn is primed to play an important role in the Artemis mission as it has with other key NASA initiatives. GCP looks forward to working with our congressional delegation to maximize the economic development potential of this important asset in our region.”
