Description

"Accelerating Innovation” with TARDEC and DARPA


Innovation in Defense Acquisition – Learn and Connect!

Long acquisition life cycles run counter to innovation. By the time a traditional acquisition program completes, any “new” technology is outdated.

As a result, DoD got clever.

To embrace innovative technologies, DoD got innovative with acquisition strategies.

During an intense, day-long session with key decision-makers, participants will hear about innovation in acquisition from TARDEC, DARPA and OTA leaders and have networking opportunities for one on one guidance. The event was designed by government and industry for learning, connections and collaboration.

  • Other Transaction Authorities

  • Consortiums

  • DARPA and TARDEC Overviews

Accelerating Innovation will be held at the Grand Valley State University Eberhard Center on March 21, 2019 from 8:00 am – 6:00 pm. Join us!
