DHS S&T Seeks Proposals for Counterterrorism Concepts

1 min read

The Department of Homeland Security’s science and technology directorate plans to award $35 million in grants to accommodate the development of approaches to assist the agency’s counterterrorism operations. DHS said Monday that it seeks concepts using multiple disciplines including data analytics and engineering to address counterterrorism gaps and mitigate people’s inclination to violence.

“By partnering with universities, S&T delivers practical results by developing multidisciplinary, customer-driven solutions while training the next generation of homeland security experts,” said William Bryan, senior official performing the duties of the undersecretary for science and technology at DHS.

Efforts under the funding opportunity are intended to support the creation of a DHS center of excellence through the Terrorism Prevention and Counterterrorism Research initiative. Interested teams from universities and colleges may submit their proposals until Sept. 6. DHS S&T will host a webinar on Aug. 6 to explain details on the funding opportunity.
