DST is seeking an academic partner for its next Next Generation Technologies Fund (NGTF) Emerging Disruptive Technology Assessment Symposium, or EDTAS. No date has set as yet for this EDTAS – it will be held as a virtual event some time during November of this year.
Deadline for Submissions is Friday, 4 September 2020, 11:59 PM (AEST)
The theme for the symposium will be: Agile Command and Control (AC2) for Defence and National Security, reflecting one of the STaR Shot research thrusts announced earlier this year.
The EDTAS academic partner will co-host the event and act as the primary hub for broad national and international academic outreach by coordinating academic participation with internationally recognised leading researchers from institutions across Australia.
It would also be desirable that the academic partner:
- have the ability to provide both access to and support for high-level virtual video conferencing and syndicate/workshop platform
- can identify a thought leader at professorial level and a post-doctoral researcher to provide operational support in partnership with the Next Generation Technologies Fund (NGTF)
- can indicate how this EDTAS could tie into other activities of relevance to Agile Command and Control conducted by the university
Submission deadline: Friday, 4 September 2020, 11:59 PM (AEST)
