Global Innovation for a Secure Future

NDUF Industry Innovation Seminars introduce NDU faculty and students to government and private sector leaders who are tackling leading edge topics with the goal of exploring the realm of “what is possible,” driving solution-oriented thinking and critical decision-making skills that enhance the NDU student experience and the faculty body of knowledge.

Industry Innovation Seminars are conducted in small group settings for select NDU students, faculty, and leaders as well as government, military, and private sector executive partners.
