DOD International Science and Technology Engagement Strategy

DOD International Science and Technology Engagement Strategy

Acting Under Secretary Michael Kratsios signed the DOD International Science and Technology Engagement Strategy, which supports the 2018 National Defense Strategy (NDS) directive to strengthen alliances and attract new partners. The strategy codifies the role that R&E plays in coordinating the Department’s international science and technology (S&T) engagement. The strategy represents a two-year effort by the International Outreach and Policy (IO&P) team to build upon insights and feedback from the international staffs of the R&E Components, U.S. Military Services, S&T Advisors at the Combatant Commands, and laboratories and agencies that comprise the DOD S&T enterprise. The strategy seeks to provide a framework that the Department will use in pursuing international S&T cooperation.
