On Wednesday, May 18, Defense Threat Reduction Agency (DTRA) program managers will present on DTRA's active research opportunities. DTRA fosters and enables farsighted, high payoff research focused on the unique challenges related to countering the effects of weapons of mass destruction (WMD) by advancing the fundamental knowledge and understanding in the sciences, facilitating the transition of basic research to the applied research stakeholders, and complementing Agency applied research efforts with university research capabilities. DTRA also employs Broad Agency Announcement and Small Business Innovation Research competitive solicitations to invest in applied research and technology development efforts at universities and not-for-profit organizations, national labs and DoD labs, as well as with industry and small businesses. This webinar will give an overview of these activities.
