  • Understanding DARPA Announcements and Contract Vehicles

  • Strategies for Crafting a Winning DARPA Proposal

Registration to attend is available for in-person and online. The opportunity to hold one-on-one conversations with DARPA program managers and DoD stakeholders will only be offered for in-person attendees, and space is limited.
