CONNECTING INDUSTRY AND DoD - Have a solution for a DOD technology need?  Want to find out about DOD's long range R&D plans and the strategic directions the Services are moving? Or maybe you're just interested in DOD science and technology news and events?  Then check out the Defense Innovation Marketplace and their 17 Communities of Interest (COIs) covering everthing from advanced electronics to space systems, biomedical to energy and power technologies, cyber to human systems and more.

The Defense Innovation Marketplace is a communications resource to provide industry with improved insight into the Research and Engineering investment priorities of the Department of Defense (DoD).  The Marketplace contains DoD R&E strategic documents, solicitations, and News/Events to better inform Independent Research and Development (IR&D) planning. The IR&D Secure Portal houses project summaries that provide DoD with visibility into the IR&D efforts submitted.

The COIs were established as a mechanism to encourage multi-agency coordination and collaboration in cross-cutting technology focus areas with broad multiple Component investment. COIs provide a forum for coordinating Science & Technology strategies across the Department, sharing new ideas, technical directions, and technology opportunities.
