FIU in Washington D.C. invites all FIU Panthers in DC to the Defense Techconnect Innovation Summit & Expo!

Entering its tenth year, the annual Defense TechConnect (DTC) Summit, co-located with the Fall SBIR/STTR Innovation Conference and Operational Energy and Logistics Summit (OE&L), brings together defense, private industry, federal agencies, and academic leadership to accelerate state-of-the-art technology solutions for the military and national security. This year's key focus areas include but are not limited to energy, climate, cyber, biodefense, space, advanced manufacturing, and 5G.

The DTC supports innovation imperatives in the National Defense Strategy (NDS) and is a unique platform to reach thousands of public and private leaders focused on innovation and technology to support the warfighter. At last year's Defense Innovation Summit, more than 1,300+ one-on-one meetings took place, 200+ booths and tabletop displays in the Exhibit Hall representing private sector companies and non-traditional innovators, and close to 40 breakout sessions.

Do not miss on this amazing opportunity!
