The Government-University-Industry Research Roundtable will convene a webinar to discuss the recommendations from a new report from the Office of the Director of National Intelligence (ODNI) on the science and technology (S&T) investment landscape.
The threat environment facing the U.S. national security enterprise is dynamic, and the intelligence community (IC) can ill-afford to remain static. The IC must develop approaches for actively signaling to the sectors those research challenges that it anticipates facing. As the basis for meaningful engagement with a broad range of public and private stakeholders, the IC S&T enterprise must clearly articulate its principal challenges and provide a variety of means for prospective solvers to market their capabilities. The FY2022–2026 ODNI S&T Investment Landscape is designed to increase the level of transparency into documented challenges facing the national security enterprise and to better align public- and private-sector efforts in support of these intelligence needs. The Landscape provides not only the intelligence enterprise, but also the broader national security enterprise and basic research community with additional insight and clarity into challenges the IC is likely to encounter in the coming years.
During this webinar, Dr. David Isaacson, Deputy Director of Science and Technology at ODNI, and Bob Lawton, the Chief of Mission Capabilities for the ODNI Science and Technology Group, will provide an overview and key conclusions from the Landscape.
