Time: 11:00 a.m.
Location: Online

Big Ideas Exchange (BIX) event is scheduled for Wednesday, June 3, 2020 at 11:00 a.m. 

In collaboration with Marine Corps University and Naval War College

The Student Big Ideas Exchange (BIX) is a Naval Postgraduate School initiative that advances innovative and groundbreaking concepts developed by NPS students to address current and emerging national security challenges. BIX serves as a platform to broadcast these ideas and work toward implementation within the United States Navy and Marine Corps. The presentations also provoke further original thinking and stimulate relevant discussion among students, faculty, and the Fleet Marine Force. 

For this year’s student Big Ideas Exchange, the Naval Postgraduate School is excited to partner with Marine Corps University’s Krulak Center and the Naval War College. The Naval Education Enterprise is leveraging collaborative education and research as we collectively address maritime challenges, modernize naval capabilities, and develop tomorrow’s senior leaders of the Navy and Marine Corps.
