the future of
national security innovation.
UNUM is the new name for the Defense Innovation Network platform. Join innovators from the defense, academic, and venture communities to change the way national security innovation works.
Communities bring together people working in the same problem area, connect innovators in regional ecosystems, and provide spaces to share knowledge and expertise.
Challenges come in different forms, from bottom-up innovation challenges to online hackathons and other problem-solving activities which bring together diverse collaborators from across the network.
UNUM is the one platform built to support innovators from across the Department of Defense, academic, and venture communities who want to connect and collaborate. Communities, Challenges, and Connections provide national security innovators with a common set of tools for discovering and leveraging the power of the networks.
Communities are technology and problem focused contexts for the exchange of knowledge and expertise. Challenges create opportunities to bring together those at the front-line of national security challenges with non-traditional innovators. People like you are at the heart of it all, part of new networks of innovators building the future of national security.
