The Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) Defense Sciences Office (DSO) is sponsoring a Proposers Day webcast to provide information to potential proposers on the objectives of an anticipated Research Announcement1(RA) for the Young Faculty Award 2022 (YFA 2022) program.
PROGRAM OBJECTIVE AND DESCRIPTION The objective of the DARPA YFA 2022 program is to identify and engage rising stars in junior research positions, particularly those without prior DARPA funding, to expose them to DoD needs and DARPA’s mission to create and prevent technological surprise. YFA will provide high-impact funding to elite researchers early in their careers to develop innovative new research that enables transformative DoD capabilities. Ultimately, YFA is developing the next generations of researchers focused on national security issues.
DARPA anticipates soliciting innovative research proposals in the following areas: physical sciences, engineering, materials, mathematics, biology, computing, informatics, social science, robotics, neuroscience, and manufacturing. Eligibility requirements for YFA are outlined below; however, potential proposers should consult the anticipated YFA 2022 RA for any additional eligibility requirements.
