Guest Speakers, Research Divisions' Presentations

Through our active engagement with speakers and a variety of collaborative programs, IDA seeks to expand and strengthen its own research capability, develop new initiatives involving national security, and promote its intellectual diversity. The speaker program includes the President’s Colloquia Series, which features distinguished military and civilian leaders who talk on a range of technical and policy issues related to national security. IDA also conducts seminars on specialized topics capitalizing on the knowledge of experts in the fields relevant to IDA’s research programs.
