The Dwight D. Eisenhower School for National Security and Resource Strategy, formerly known as the Industrial College of the Armed Forces, prepares senior military officers, government civilians, selected representatives from the private sector, and international officers for the national security challenges of the 21st century. The Institution's goal is to leverage technological advances, integrate new strategic and operational concepts, identify and adapt to evolving global developments, and channel the vitality and innovation of the Services, the inter-agency, and allies to achieve a more seamless, coherent effect when confronting evolving national security challenges and the battlefields of the future.
As part of a European tour, 21 acquisition professionals, who are currently enrolled in the S&T Policy Course, visited multiple American, French, and European S&T organizations with the aim of building awareness of the international S&T organizations. On 5 November 2019, the CSO welcomed the Eisenhower School's 21 professionals and provided the group with a detailed overview of the Collaboration Support Office's Science and Technology portfolio and structure. In addition, as one of NATO's Secretary General priorities and as a focus area for the School's programme, the CSO briefed on NATO Space initiatives within the STO Program of Work, expanding upon outlets for current and future collaboration within the Alliance.
This Eisenhower School's visit provided for a timely opportunity to discuss S&T research within the Alliance, how it contributes to NATO's technology and capability development, and provided insight for collaboration with future French and USA Acquisition decision makers.Published 2019-11-24T23:00:00Z by STO
