Defence Entrepreneurs Forum Australia: 2017

By The Cove May 16, 2019


The Defence Entrepreneurs Forum Australia (DEFAus) is a network of serving military personnel who debate future concepts and progress ideas to tangible action. Throughout the year, all military members regardless of rank, service or corps, are invited to present an innovative idea which is formally presented to Army leadership at an end of year forum. DEFAUS17 was held at the Australian Defence College between 14th-15th December 2017. The two day event included a number of excellent presentations on innovation and some inspiring ideas to help improve defence capability.
