Presented by The MITRE Corporation

Time: 8:00 a.m. – 11:30 a.m.
Location: The MITRE Corporation McLean Campus,

McLean, Va.

Cyber technology providers, entrepreneurs, investment companies, and technology catalyst groups are invited to attend MITRE’s Technology Transfer Forum.

“MITRE licenses our innovations to a range of organizations such as startups, small and large businesses and universities so that the value we create in our federally-funded projects is also working in the public interest,” said Barry Costa, Director of MITRE’s Technology Transfer Office.

As a not-for-profit operator of federally-funded research and development centers, MITRE doesn’t compete with private industry, but rather licenses its innovations to startups, small and large businesses and universities, making technologies more affordable and sustainable to the federal government.

Speakers will include representatives from The Department of Homeland Security Science and Technology Directorate; Mach 37; Insider Spyder and MITRE. WHAT: Technology Transfer Forum covering cyber research, technology transfer and the commercialization of cyber technologies. Attendees will:

  • Meet and connect with the region's cyber community
  • Discover emerging cyber technologies
  • Hear how companies are leveraging U.S. Government R&D investments (and why the government encourages this approach)
  • See MITRE prototypes that address advanced cyber threats and advanced persistent threats, including mission-impact analysis, identifying mission-critical assets, and voice biometrics
