In the race to get the country back on track in the current COVID-19 era, the Department of Homeland Security Science and Technology Directorate (S&T) is leading a whole-of-government approach to build public-private innovation teams that incentivize and lower the risk for industry to co-invest in solutions to address nationwide problems and build resilience capacity.
Our CES ‘21 theme, “The Road to Reopening: Recovery through Research,” answers the call about what is needed from a governmental R&D organization to improve security, restore public confidence and keep our front-line workforce safe and protected. S&T is at CES to enhance relationships with the innovation community and help the tech community get more connected to federal government-led R&D COVID-response initiatives.
By working across public and private sectors, S&T is identifying and advancing R&D solutions that have the potential for scaling across numerous communities in the areas of public transit, wastewater surveillance, drone operations, airport security, and COVID-19 threat characterization and assessment. We look forward to continuing these crucial conversations, which directly impact the nation’s public health, national security, economic recovery and smart cities future.
