The Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) Defense Sciences Office (DSO) is sponsoring a Proposers Daywebcast to provide information to potential proposers on the objectives of an anticipated Broad Agency Announcement (BAA) for the Driven and Nonequilibrium Quantum Systems (DRINQS) program.  The Proposers Day will be held via prerecorded webcast on February 1, 2018 from 1:00 PM to 2:00 PM.  Advance registration is required for viewing the webcast.  Note, all times listed in this announcement and on the registration website are Eastern Time.

Registration is required at http://www.cvent.com/d/3tq4sp by January 29, 2018!

Office of Research will hold a screening at B21 University Club on February 1, 2018, between 1:00 pm -2: 00 pm.

The goals of the DRINQS Proposers Day are to:

(a) introduce the research community (Proposers, Academia, and Government) to the DRINQS program vision and goals;

(b) explain the mechanics of a DARPA program and the milestones of this particular effort, and

(c) encourage and promote teaming arrangements among potential organizations that have the relevant expertise, facilities, and capabilities for executing a research and development program responsive to the DRINQS program goals. 

To maximize the pool of innovative proposal concepts, DARPA strongly encourages participation by non‐traditional proposers (including small businesses, academic and research institutions, and first‐time Government contractors) in events such as this and any subsequent solicitations.
