Joint School of Nanoscience and Nanoengineering 2907 E. Gate City Blvd | Greensboro, NC 27401
The U.S. Army Science and Technology enterprise comprises multiple research centers distributed nationally, employing a large civilian workforce of world-class scientists, engineers, analysts, technicians, and support staff who are focused on empowering America’s future soldiers, and ensuring the country’s defense and security. Underutilized in this Army S&T enterprise is the vast talent pool of HBCU/MIs. The FY23 National Defense Authorization Act, directs the Department of the Army to strengthen the defense research capacity of HBCU/MI institutions through long-term partnerships focused on building research capacity and capabilities in areas of research interest to the Army. To promote this effort, a workshop will be held on March 11-12, 2024 at the JSNN Campus, Greensboro, NC, with participation from various Army research centers/labs and a broad collection of HBCU/MI institutions.
