Projects and Partnerships

On October 21, 2011, USF signed a collaboration agreement with United States Central Command (USCENTCOM). Under this agreement USF and CENTCOM will continue to share resources and knowledge to develop joint research, education and training, as well as new mutually beneficial projects.
