Event description
LSU and the Department of Defense will host a meeting on How to Engage with the Department of Defense Basic Research Enterprise

About this Event

In 2017, Congress reauthorized and funded the Defense Established Program to Stimulate Competitive Research (DEPSCoR) in order to enhance the capabilities of institutes of higher education in certain states and to increase their number of university researchers, increasing the probability of long-term growth in competitive federal funding.

To meet the directives outlined by Congress, the Department of Defense (DoD) is hosting outreach meetings to educate researchers about the DoD Research Enterprise. The Southern Regional Meeting will take place on February 20, 2020 at Louisiana State University in the Digital Media Center Theater, with lodging available for vistors at the Cook Hotel and Conference Center, also on campus.

The Southern Region of DEPSCoR-eligible states includes states straddling the Appalachian mountains and bordering the Mississippi River and Gulf: Alabama, Arkansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, South Carolina, Tennessee, and West Viriginia.

Program managers from the research agencies and other DoD representatives will participate in the meeting, which will cover the following topics:

  • How to work with the DoD, especially ARO, ONR, AFOSR
  • How to make connections with DoD program officers
  • How to pursue funding opportunities specific to DEPSCoR
  • How to pursue other programs within the Basic Research Office

This is a free event presented by the Department of Defense and hosted by Louisiana State University. Breakfast, lunch, and refreshments will be provided.

Registration and breakfast will begin at 7:30 a.m.
