DASA Highlands Roadshow- Inverness

October 29, 2019 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pm

Join the Defence and Security Accelerator (DASA) as they journey across Scotland and discover how DASA finds and funds innovation.

DASA will be hosting briefings in Oban, Fort William, Inverness and Thurso between 22-29 October 2019 aimed at interested parties from academia and industry.

A DASA Regional Innovation Partner (IP) will brief about DASA in Inverness, alongside further briefings from Interface, the European Space Agency (ESA), CENSIS and Data Lab on funding opportunities available. The briefings will then be followed with the opportunity to book a 1-to-1 meeting with the organisations present.

The DASA mission is for the UK to have the most innovative defence and security capabilities in the world. We achieve this by finding and funding innovative ideas from academia and industry, including SME’s and Primes, and seeking to rapidly bring them into use across defence and security.

Further information about DASA, including our competitions, can be found on the DASA Website.

Book a 1-to-1 meeting here.
