DARPAConnect is designed to broaden DARPA’s reach and stimulate growth and collaboration between DARPA and small businesses and education institutions new to the national security space. With the goal of breaking down barriers of entry, this event is designed to educate, motivate, and inspire nontraditional performers and underrepresented academic organizations, including Minority Serving Institutions (MSIs) and Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs), to engage with DARPA to grow the national security innovation ecosystem.
Produced with the newcomer in mind, the first half of the day is your DARPA 101 level introduction. The afternoon section will feature two tracks: A DARPA-specific session for HBCUs and MSIs and another designed for Department of Defense (DoD) stakeholders and R&D pros where we expand the session to include other local DoD stakeholders and Florida economic development organizations.
