Chafee visits Massachusetts research center

Rhode Island Gov. Lincoln Chafee has headed north to meet with officials at Draper Laboratory to discuss a possible partnership in the Ocean State.

Chafee traveled to Draper’s Cambridge, Mass., complex on Tuesday.

Draper Laboratory is a non-profit research and development center once affiliated with the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. It has five locations throughout the country focusing on defense technology, health care and energy.

A spokesman for Chafee said the governor, an independent, wanted to discuss a proposal to bring a center to Rhode Island that would focus on renewable energy research.

Two years ago Draper and Brown University in Providence announced plans to collaborate on energy-related research and technology development.
