DARPA’s Defense Sciences Office is hosting a Proposers Day webinar to provide information to potential applicants on the structure and objectives of the Young Faculty Awards (YFA) program in anticipation of a forthcoming YFA research announcement. The YFA program aims to identify and engage rising stars in junior faculty positions in academia and equivalent positions at non-profit research institutions, and expose them to Department of Defense (DoD) and National Security challenges and needs. In particular, YFA will provide high-impact funding to elite researchers early in their careers to develop innovative new research directions in the context of enabling transformative DoD capabilities.
The Proposers Day will be held on October 3, 2016, from 2:00 PM - 5:00 PM ET. Participation is via webcast only, and advance registration is required. Please register at: http://www.sa-meetings.com/YFAProposersDay. Registration closes September 28, 2016, at 12:00 PM ET or when capacity is reached, whichever comes first.
DARPA hosts Proposers Days to provide potential performers with information on whether and how they might respond to the Government’s research and development solicitations and to increase efficiency in proposal preparation and evaluation. Therefore, the YFA Proposers Day is open only to registered potential applicants.
Additional details, including eligibility information, are available at: https://www.fbo.gov/spg/ODA/DARPA/CMO/DARPA-SN-16-72/listing.html.
The technical point of contact is Dr. Fariba Fahroo, YFA Program Manager: YFA2017@darpa.mil. Please refer to the YFA Proposers Day in all correspondence.
