Small Business Innovation Research in Defence (SBIRD) Information session

The Small Business Innovation Research for Defence (SBIRD) program provides opportunities for Australian small businesses to undertake research projects which have potential for future Defence applications.

DST invites Pacific 2019 attendees who are representatives of small to medium enterprises, academia, large industry or publicly funded research agencies to attend this information session on the latest opportunity under the SBIRD program to submit a research proposal on the topic of integrating advanced materials onto military platforms. 

If you work in advanced materials and believe your small to medium enterprise has something to contribute, then the SBIRD program could provide a valuable pathway to further develop your technology for a Defence application.

Where: Starboard Theatrette, Hall 1

When: Tuesday 8 October 0930 to 1030
