The Technology Surprise Forum is designed to:

a) facilitate government agencies with a national security remit to more quickly and efficiently discover emerging and disruptive scientific and technology innovations that will either accelerate or impede their program objectives while minimising strategic technology surprise, and;

b) initiate and/or enhance broad engagement between these Government sectors, Australia’s Five-eye partners and traditional and non-traditional scientific research organizations including academic and industry sectors.

The Technology Surprise Forum will seek to highlight a range of high impact future technologies that will likely influence the Australian National Security landscape over the next 5 to 10 years. Invited speakers and participants from a diverse range of practicing scientists and engineers within academia, industry and government will discuss these technologies and their applicability and relevance to the National Security problem.  The call to be involved will be announced soon.
