About the Session

Panelists from the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Science and Technology Directorate (S&T) Office of Industry Partnerships will discuss how industry partners can work with S&T through its unique innovation-funding programs and current opportunities to adapt, develop and commercialize technologies in support of DHS missions.

S&T relies on private-sector partners to help discover scientific advancements and technological innovations that solve homeland security challenges. From entrepreneurs and academia to small businesses and large corporations, S&T has unique tools for private-sector entities to help them find new and emerging technology that can be designed, adapted and used for homeland security. Key takeaways for attendees will include an understanding of the ways in which innovators can work with government, specifically S&T, the available funding opportunities in which innovators can submit to work with the government through specific programs and how participants can connect with S&T given their organization type and interests.
