Implementing Innovation Series: A Perspective from Will Roper, Air Force Acquisition Executive

March 15, 2019 • 9:00 – 10:30 am EDT

As part of CSIS’s ongoing Implementing Innovation Series, hear perspectives from Air Force Acquisition Executive Dr. William Roper. Dr. Roper has been a moving force in implementing innovation in defense for the last 7 years. His insight on what it takes to deliver innovative capability for confronting peer competitors is changing the acquisition approach for the United States Air Force. It is also being closely watched throughout industry and the defense community.  Both his remarks and Q&A provide an opportunity to highlight what is moving the needle for DoD today, and what remains to be done.

This event is made possible through general support to CSIS.
