About the Event

From the outside, the DoD science and technology funding infrastructure can appear complex and obscure. Without guidance it is difficult to answer some basic questions such as: Who decides which research topics are important to the DoD? What process determines how DoD research funds are allocated? How can I access this information? And most importantly, how can I maximize the likelihood of obtaining funding for my research? Formulated from experience both as a contract researcher and as a government program manager, this talk will cover some of the information, ideas, disciplines, and techniques that can help demystify DoD research funding
