Accelerating Innovation: University, U.S. Military, & Private Sector Partnerships

Thursday, May 06, 2021 at 4:00pm to 5:30pm

Virtual Event

The way the military has approached partnering for technological innovation has changed significantly over the last 5+ years. In order to tap into rapid advances made in consequential areas such as Artificial Intelligence/Machine Learning, the DoD and military services have turned to commercial/startup-inspired models.  These changes comprise a new innovation landscape that includes many partnerships among academics, the US military, and the private sector. Many of the new organizations emerging in this new landscape are connected to MIT.

Join a panel discussion to explore:

  • How have these partnerships worked in general?
  • How much have they changed the way defense innovation operates in practice?
  • What has been…and what should be MIT’s role?
