The iDISPLA innovation team along with its key partners have launched a workforce development initiative in Virginia. Our goal is to integrate various economic development authorities and Virginia Economic Development Partnership through the iDISPLA innovation hub.

During our phase I planning we aim to work on the following two objectives:

  • Create a cyber & STEM readiness workforce development framework that can stimulate both individual, government, and corporate business growth
  • Identify Key Partnerships to develop a sustainable and scalable cyber & STEM workforce development ecosystem with outcomes that can extend across Virginia and the Nation

The ability to collaborate with the various EDAs, universities and industry partners in Virginia will form a fertile ecosystem. This in turn will facilitate in engaging industry partners in R&D, Rapid technology development, public/private enterprise and STEM related recruitment. The collaborative hub will allow universities to find industry partners to develop collaborative and joint ventures.
