17th Annual STAR-TIDES Capabilities Demonstration

The STAR-TIDES Capabilities Demonstration, which will take place on Apr. 15th and 16th, 2024 at George Mason University’s Mason Square campus in Arlington, Virginia, will showcase products and activities of the STAR-TIDES (Sharing To Accelerate Research – Transformative Innovation for Development and Emergency Support) global knowledge-sharing network.
The network includes several thousand members engaged in building sustainable resilience, promoting human security, and creating life-changing social and economic activities. STAR-TIDES is coordinated through GMU’s Center for Resilient and Sustainable Communities (C-RASC).
This year’s theme is “Adapting to Climate Change,” emphasizing collaborative cross-sector approaches (such as energy + communications) to help communities adapt to the “new normal” of climate change in their region. As Thomas Friedman has pointed out, “it’s not the strongest, fastest, or smartest that survives, but rather the most adaptable.”
Registration is free for attendees. Exhibit cost is $600 through March 1st and $750 thereafter. Most exhibits will be indoors, with exhibit spaces immediately adjacent to the auditorium. A few adjacent outdoor areas provide space for larger exhibits. See sponsorship registration link for details on sponsorship opportunities.

Exhibitors at the Mason event can register at no cost for the related TIDES event in the Pentagon Center Courtyard on Apr. 17th-18th.
