Inter Agency Working Group Looks at Critical Challenges to Defense, Space, Cyber, Manufacturing, Civil and Commercial Areas
Natural disasters, creative adversaries and unforeseeable futures all pose a common threat to the engineering of large complex systems that are essential to national security, economy and quality of life.
Because these systems are far more complex and interconnected than ever before, a working group of engineering leaders from a number of U.S. government agencies has been meeting to discuss the challenges and goals in moving our Nation toward the next generation of engineering research and practice.
The Potomac Institute has served as the administrator to the group in its inaugural year, managing meetings, agendas, and documentation, while providing support and input to the discussions. Institute Research Fellow Lois Hollan is the Institute representative on the group.
