The Defense Energy Summit is being held in Austin this week (Nov 11-13) will gather stakeholders and working groups to build the foundation for a new Defense Energy Center of Excellence. The summit’s focus will center on this proposed initiative and how to accelerate clean energy and infrastructure solutions for the DOD.
The Tech Ranch is excited to be a Supporting Partner of the conference and the Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Fall Summit.
Just this week, the Department of Defense and the National Security Technology Accelerator announced a new $100 million Energy Innovation Authority. The Initiative will focus on rapid Prototype and Test opportunities for defense and non-defense companies and research organizations.
The SBIR programs are highly competitive, encouraging small businesses to engage in Federal Research/Research and Development (R/R&D) work with potential for commercialization. Representatives from all 11 federal agencies with SBIR programs will attend to help entrepreneurs and businesses learn how they can participate in these innovation programs.
