The EDTAS series is a key program which helps the Next Generation Technologies Fund future-proof Australian Defence. The series considers expansive science and technology topics that will heavily impact Defence and National Security domains over a 20+ year timeframe.
DST is partnering with universities and industry to co-host these events and help shape strategic planning.
An EDTAS symposium is a mix of leading edge presentations, thought provoking workshops and keynote presentations.
