Communities of Interest
The Communities of Interest (COIs) were established as a mechanism to encourage multi-agency coordination and collaboration in cross-cutting technology focus areas with broad multiple Component investment. COIs provide a forum for coordinating Science & Technology strategies across the Department, sharing new ideas, technical directions, and technology opportunities. The scope of the 17 COIs is detailed in the Tier 1 Taxonomy below, and on the COI pages.
