Darpa Events

Academic Research Roundtable

March 8, 2017
The Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) is sponsoring an Academic Research Roundtable event with the broader potential performer community in higher education for the purpose of engaging its members in a dialogue on technology and research opportunities. The event will include discussion of the Agency’s vision and goals, overviews of each of DARPA’s technical offices by office leadership, and an explanation of the mechanics of working with DARPA.

Spectrum Collaboration Challenge

2016-2019
Over the next three years, DARPA’s Microsystems Technology Office will hold a series of competitive events as the Agency’s next grand challenge—the Spectrum Collaboration Challenge (SC2)—unfolds. SC2 is the first-of-its-kind collaborative machine-learning competition to overcome scarcity in the radio frequency spectrum. Today, access to the spectrum is managed by dividing it into rigid, exclusively licensed bands.
