We’ve done it. We interviewed all of the international offices, and today’s post will be the last entry into this on-going series of “Doing Business with our International Offices.” Earlier this week, we sat with the folks in our London office otherwise known as the European Office of Aerospace Research and Development – or EOARD for short.
Colonel D. Brent Morris is the Director of AFOSR’s International Science Division and Commander of EOARD. Col. Morris directs offices in London, Santiago and Tokyo overseeing a research budget of $50+ million leading to execution of 400+ grants.
Not only is Col. Morris an influential U.S. Air Force leader, he is also a skilled beekeeper. Much like the mutualistic relationship between the bee & the flower, EOARD seeks partnerships with exquisite scientists to conduct basic research.
The AFOSR mission is to discover shape and champion basic science that profoundly impacts the future U.S. Air Force and U.S. Space Force. Read the IO Annual Report to see our how our international sphere of influence supports the mission.Continue reading
