Quick Reference

November 2017
SERDP and ESTCP are the Department of Defense's environmental research programs, harnessing the latest science and technology to improve DoD's environmental performance, reduce costs, and enhance and sustain mission capabilities. The Programs respond to environmental technology requirements that are common to all of the military Services, complementing the Services' research programs. SERDP and ESTCP promote partnerships and collaboration among academia, industry, the military Services, and other Federal agencies. At the conference each funded SERDP and ESTCP investigator presents their project results. Not only does the conference highlight these research and demonstrations through both the technical sessions and the posters, but the Symposium has been an excellent place for collaboration among researchers and offers a chance for end users to see the latest innovations in environmental technology.
