Event Details

Please join the Air Force Studies Board of the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine for the Air Force S&T Engagement Summit on Jan 18, 2018 at 12:30pm. This summit will highlight remarks from Secretary of the U.S. Air Force Heather Wilson on her vision for rethinking how the Air Force manages ground-breaking research. She will discuss her ideas for how to productively partner with states, consortia, universities and other non-federal research entities in order to advance knowledge and retain American dominance in air and space power.

The event will take place from 12:30-2:30pm, followed by an hour-long social in the Great Hall. You have the option to register to attend this event in person or online. Please note that due to time constraints, we will not be able to take questions from online participants.

This summit is sponsored by the Air Force Research Laboratory and will provide an overview of the goals for an ongoing strategic review and share details on numerous outreach activities that will provide an opportunity for you to share your ideas for the future of the Air Force research agenda.
