Colorado State University and the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) will host a two-day conference in Fort Collins on Aug. 30-31, the first such event in a series at six universities around the country.
The DARPA Forward conference at CSU will energize and unite innovators across the Rocky Mountain region to develop new breakthrough technologies for national security. Attendees will hear from world-renowned scientists, accomplished innovators and senior defense leaders on a wide range of issues connected to national security.
For CSU, it is an opportunity for experts across the university to showcase research achievements in agricultural biosecurity, pandemic prevention and response, bio-cybersecurity, One Health disease prevention and environmental protection, clean energy technology and climate change solutions.
“As a former DARPA program manager, I am delighted that our campus will share in the unique DARPA culture of sharing new ideas to help solve today’s grand challenges to protect the country,” said Alan Rudolph, vice president for research at CSU. “I am glad CSU is the first stop for the DARPA Forward conference series, and I look forward to showcasing the thriving innovation ecosystem here.” Info and RSVP>>>
