The Advanced Strategic Capabilities Accelerator (ASCA) and Defence Innovation Network would like to invite you to the NSW and ACT ASCA Forum 2023.

ASCA takes a holistic approach to defence innovation, supporting the exploration of emerging and disruptive technologies, identifying innovations that can be rapidly adapted for military purposes and delivering asymmetric capabilities to Defence via Missions.

This forum will provide stakeholders with an opportunity to hear from Professor Emily Hilder, Interim Head of ASCA, who will outline ahead of the inaugural Mission announcement, the mission process and how participants can engage going forward.

Emily will also update on the Emerging Disruptive Technologies (EDT) program, which focuses on shaping and future-proofing the innovation ecosystem.

This event is targeted towards industry, universities and other research providers who are interested in working with Defence to bring new and disruptive capabilities through innovation.
