DARPA: An FSU Professor's Experience

Strategies for working with and applying through the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency

Workshop Overviewundefined

If you would like to know a little more about the agency and what it funds, please plan to attend this workshop. Speaking at this workshop will be FSU faculty member Tyler McQuade from the Department of Chemistry.


The Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) was established in 1958 to prevent strategic surprise from negatively impacting U.S. national security and create strategic surprise for U.S. adversaries by maintaining the technological superiority of the U.S. military.

To fulfill its mission, the Agency relies on diverse performers to apply multi-disciplinary approaches to both advance knowledge through basic research and create innovative technologies that address current practical problems through applied research. DARPA’s scientific investigations span the gamut from laboratory efforts to the creation of full-scale technology demonstrations in the fields of biology, medicine, computer science, chemistry, physics, engineering, mathematics, material sciences, social sciences, neurosciences and more. As the DoD’s primary innovation engine, DARPA undertakes projects that are finite in duration but that create lasting revolutionary change.
