DARPA has invested more than $200 million in support of President Obama's Brain Initiative since 2014. This Federal investment has accelerated the development of innovative neurotechnologies with the potential to improve human health and change the way people live, work, and play. On March 2, 2016, DARPA will host a small meeting of technology-minded investors, scientists, and entrepreneurs to showcase several current, cutting-edge neurotechnology efforts, consider future trajectories and potential applications, and encourage continued investment and eventual commercialization of some of these technologies. Space is limited. Interested parties with venture portfolios in this domain should email justin.sanchez@darpa.mil for more information and registration details.

Webcast
The Defense Sciences Office is holding a Proposers Day webcast to provide information to potential candidates for DARPA’s Young Faculty Awards (YFA) program. The objectives of YFA are to identify and engage rising stars in junior research positions inside and outside of academia, expose them to Defense Department needs and DARPA’s program development process, and provide high-impact funding to develop new research directions that help to transform national security capabilities.

DARPA’s investment strategy begins with a portfolio approach. Reaching for outsized impact means taking on risk, and high risk in pursuit of high payoff is a hallmark of DARPA’s programs. We pursue our objectives through hundreds of programs. By design, programs are finite in duration while creating lasting revolutionary change. They address a wide range of technology opportunities and national security challenges. This assures that while individual efforts might fail—a natural consequence of taking on risk—the total portfolio delivers.
