Army Science and Technology Roundtable Meeting 3

February 6 - February 7

Hybrid Hybrid Event

The National Academy of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine will convene this third Roundtable under the Board on Army Research and Development on 6-7 Feb 2024 to explore research and acquisition related issues of interest to the Army.

In-person attendance is invitation-only. Virtual attendance is available.

The Roundtable series gathers leaders from government, industry, and academia to define and explore the following three themes that are critical to the Army’s research and acquisition efforts:

1) Provide a forum to share science and technology (S&T) priorities and improve the synergy and harmonization between government, industry research and development, and academia programs.

2) Examine actionable opportunities, particularly those for prime vendors, to widen the community of interest that contributes to Army research and technology (R&T), thereby improving participation of small, disadvantaged, minority, and veteran-owned businesses and research institutions.

3) Discuss SBIR, xTech, and other emerging research initiatives of interest to the sponsor, to ensure they promote the best chances for technology transfer into warfighter systems.

This roundtable will be designed to facilitate candid dialogue among participants, share best practices to promote efficiencies, and strengthen the enterprise’s unity of effort. It will also complement activities undertaken by the Department of the Air Force Science and Technology Roundtable.
