The Biological Technologies Office (BTO) of the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) is sponsoring a Proposers' Day in advance of an anticipated Broad Agency Announcement (BAA) for the Biological Robustness in Complex Settings (BRICS) Program, DARPA-BAA-14-49. The Proposers' Day will be held on 21 August 2014 at the Capital Conference Center in Arlington, VA. Advanced registration is required. DARPA-BAA-14-49 is expected to be released prior to the Proposers' Day.
The goals of the Proposers' Day are:
•1.To introduce the science and technology community (industry, academia, and government) to the BRICS program vision and goals;
•2.To facilitate interaction between investigators that may have capabilities to develop elements of interest and relevance to the BRICS goals; and
•3.To encourage and promote teaming arrangements among organizations that have the relevant expertise, research facilities and capabilities for executing research and development responsive to the BRICS program goals.
The Proposers' Day will include overview presentations by government personnel and provide opportunities for team building among the participants.
