Event Details

Technology Scotland have teamed up with DASA to provide an informative webinar on the opportunities that DASA can provide and how you can get involved.

Do you have an idea that might benefit the Armed Forces and/or national security? Do you want 100% funding and to keep your IP?

The Defence and Security Accelerator (DASA) is part of the MOD and was launched in December 2016. DASA finds, funds and exploits ideas that might benefit the Armed Forces and/or national security.

To date, funding has been agreed for 71 projects in Scotland with a total value of £11.8m.

DASA providers 100% full economic cost funding between TRL2 and TRL6. The innovator retains their intellectual property and DASA does not take equity in companies. All sizes of organisations are welcome to apply to DASA. Approximately 40% of innovators that apply to DASA have never worked with defence and/or security in the past so we are extremely interested in technology transfer from other sectors. It is easy when thinking about the MOD to consider that our needs are equipment related but it is important to recognise that the MOD is comprised of people and we need all of the resources that a city requires.

In this webinar, Debra Carr (DASA Innovation Partner Scotland) and Anis Mourad (DASA Access to Mentoring and Finance Partner) will explain how DASA works and how to apply.


(Tuesday) 10:30 am - 11:30 am GMT
