|SESSION DESCRIPTION: |
“Traditionally, the Department has viewed the role of universities as producing the research innovation, the DoD labs as the mechanism to nurture these findings and to render them Defense-applicable, and the Defense Industrial Base to integrate these new technologies into acquisition programs.” (Promoting DoD’s Culture of Innovation: Hearings before the House Armed Services Committee, House of Representatives, 116th Congress (2018) (Testimony of Dr. Mike Griffin).) Learn about the Labs’ current and future projects, upcoming opportunities, and how they are enabling cross fertilization among these communities.
