DARPA ReVector Proposers Day
May 17, 2019
The Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) Biological Technologies Office is holding a Proposers Day meeting on 17 May 2019 to provide information to potential proposers on the objectives of the new ReVector program and to facilitate teaming.
The goal of ReVector is to develop an easily delivered treatment — for example, a topical solution — that safely and temporarily modifies the human skin microbiome to alter scents and thereby reduce attraction of disease-spreading mosquitoes.
The Proposers Day will include overview presentations by DARPA personnel and potential government partners; an information session during which government personnel will respond to questions posed by participants; “lightning” talks (three minutes, one slide) to allow potential proposers to highlight technical capabilities of interest and promote teaming; and short sidebars with DARPA personnel for discussion of any proprietary information that participants would not want to disclose in the other open sessions.
Attendance at this event is not a requirement for submission of a proposal or selection for funding. Information relayed during the Proposers Day will be made available on the BTO section of the DARPA Opportunities page: http://www.darpa.mil/work-with-us/opportunities.
Due to space limitations, attendance is limited to no more than three attendees per division/department unless capacity is not reached.
Participants must register in advance through the registration website. You will be required to show government-issued, picture identification that is compliant with the REAL ID Act of 2005.
Information about registration and various other meeting details can be found at the registration website.
Further administrative questions should be addressed to DARPA-SNfirstname.lastname@example.org. Please refer to the ReVector Proposers Day (DARPA-SN-19-48) in all correspondence.
DARPA hosts Proposers Days to provide potential performers with information on whether and how they might respond to the Government’s research and development solicitations and to increase efficiency in proposal preparation and evaluation. Therefore, the ReVector Proposers Day is open only to registered potential applicants, and not to the media or general public.
