Partnerships Week 2017

Defence Science and Technology Group (DST) is holding its flagship event, Partnerships Week, from 16 to 18 August 2017, to be held at their Adelaide Site, DST Edinburgh.

This year’s theme is “Partner and Prosper”

DST is reaching out to the external community to foster broader connections, identify new opportunities to create partnerships with Industry and Academia and strengthen existing ones. Visitors will have unprecedented access to senior Defence scientists and decision makers; participate in a series of workshops, presentations and briefings on DST’s research and development.

The event is invitation only (access code required) and will run the same program on both days, which are open to invited guests. On 18 August Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) activities will be run for academic leaders - more information coming soon.
