DASA has launched a new innovation focus area (IFA) on behalf of dstl. This funding opportunity aims to investigate generation-after-next advanced materials for Defence. There are two challenges i) intelligent materials and structures and ii) materials for enhanced thermal management. There are multiple areas within these two challenges based on different domains. TRL at finish varies as does the length of the project and funding available (maximum £300k). It’s quite complicated but we have provided a useful summary table in the information:


This IFA will run for two cycles of the DASA Open Call. These cycles close midday 22 February 2023 and midday 25 April 2023. If you are interested then please send a 500-word EOI to Deb (What the idea is? Who might use the idea and how? What advantage the idea offers?) and she will ask the customer if they are interested in assessing a full proposal.

As ever, if you have any questions don’t hesitate to drop us a note.

Many kind regards,

DASA Scotland
