The 16th Annual STAR-TIDES Capabilities Demonstration will take place on April 17th-19th, 2023 on the campus of George Mason University in Fairfax, Virginia. The theme for the 2023 event is “Sustainable Resilience in the Face of Climate Change.”
A follow-on demonstration at the Pentagon Center Courtyard will take place on April 20th-21st.
STAR-TIDES is hosted by Mason’s trans-disciplinary Center for Resilient and Sustainable Communities (C-RASC). C-RASC’s broad scope allows resilience questions to be addressed from both technical and policy points of view, and this year’s theme and focus areas opened exciting opportunities for a wide range of civilian and military collaboration.
STAR-TIDES welcomes collaboration with diverse stakeholders: businesses; local, state, federal and international governments, including defense and security interests; domestic and foreign academic institutions, including multiple Mason entities; philanthropic institutions; think tanks; and non-governmental organizations. The Capabilities Demo is designed to maximize opportunities for exhibitors to engage with Mason students, faculty and researchers.
