The School of Computer, Data & Information Sciences is partnering with the Department of Homeland Security (DHS)’s Science & Technology Directorate to share how people can access research-oriented and grant funding from the DHS. The webinar will be on October 18, 2022 from 11am to 1pm via Zoom. Register ahead of the event to receive the link and reminders.
During the webinar, attendees will have the opportunity to hear directly from DHS S&T’s Office of University Programs and the Office of Industry Partnerships about the lifecycle of research and development at S&T, including the contracting mechanisms, research opportunities, and ways to work with S&T that are available to you. S&T will speak on how people can:
- Conduct basic and applied ground-breaking research through the DHS Centers of Excellence and other opportunities for student research
- Access funding through the Long Range Broad Agency Announcement for 17 open research areas that address DHS needs
- Work with the Commercialization Accelerator Program to successfully transfer federally funded technology from lab to market
As the research, development, test, and evaluation arm for DHS, S&T is responsible for the science that strengthens the nation’s overall security, and develops and delivers the technologies that allow those on the front lines to effectively and safely complete their missions. Don’t miss out on this chance to connect directly with S&T leaders and discover what opportunities available through S&T.
