Fentanyl Forum 2024: Disrupting the Opioid Supply Chain by Land, Air, and Sea

Loading Events


  The Federal government is dedicating significant attention and resources to combating the importation of fentanyl to the United States.

    In the last 18 months, we’ve seen strong legislation urging a whole of government approach to funding and researching new technologies to target and detect fentanyl, while directing “improved interagency command, control, communications, and intelligence sharing to enhance the effectiveness of the interdiction of fentanyl at the borders of the United States.” In addition to new laws, we’ve seen agencies issue multiple strategies to address the opioid crisis, and RFIs seeking innovative research and development to bring new tools to the fight.

    To top it off, the Department of Homeland Security’s Office of Intelligence and Analysis indicated in its 2024 Threat Assessment that fentanyl is the second-greatest threat to the United States, second only to terrorism, writing, “we expect illegal drugs produced in Mexico and sold in the United States will continue to kill more Americans than any other threat.”

   This is the right time for Federal agencies, Industry partners, and Academic institutions to gather to discuss the technical and operational challenges ahead.

    For that reason, the HSTech Consortium, a nonprofit that supports innovation at the Department of Homeland Security, is sponsoring the Fentanyl Forum 2024: Disrupting the Opioid Supply Chain by Land, Air, and Sea.

    This networking event will take place on February 22, 2024, at the Ronald Reagan Building in Washington, D.C.

    Government speakers and panelists are expected from CBP, DEA, and DOD. Attendees will include Federal personnel, Industry, and Academia.

    Space for this widely attended gathering will be limited. Government employees may register and attend for free, and HSTech consortium members will receive a discounted rate. Register now to attend the Fentanyl Forum. This event is not open to the Media.
