Defense Advanced Research Projects AgencyEvents

Events

Since its inception in 1958, DARPA has been catalyzing advanced capabilities that have significantly changed outcomes for U.S. national security, repeatedly showing that what had seemed impossible was in fact doable. By design, DARPA reaches for transformational change instead of incremental advances. But DARPA does not perform its engineering alchemy in isolation. It works within an innovation ecosystem that includes academic, corporate and governmental partners, with a constant focus on the Nation’s military Services, which work with DARPA to create new strategic opportunities and novel tactical options.

One way DARPA aims to spur technology breakthroughs is by hosting events that bring together partners from across the science & technology ecosystem. Through workshops, symposia, proposers days, prize challenges and other special events, DARPA aims to engage thought leaders in diverse technical disciplines. The goal of these interactions is to build interdisciplinary synergy for tackling vexing technical challenges and sparking technological leaps forward.

We invite you to explore the Archived Events page to learn about past DARPA events. We also encourage you to peruse our D60 magazine. This 60th-anniversary edition, which we published during our D60 symposium in early September 2018, chronicles some aspects of the agency's past, present, and future.
