Defence and Security Accelerator
The Defence and Security Accelerator (DASA) is part of the Ministry of Defence (MOD) but works with many Government Departments.
DASA finds and funds innovative ideas that might benefit the Armed Forces and National Security. DASA runs Themed Competitions and the Open Call for Innovation. We provide 100% funding and respect Suppliers’ IP and equity. Dr Debra Carr is the DASA Innovation Partner in Scotland and is available to discuss Suppliers’ ideas with them and to advise on possible DASA applications. At the time of writing, DASA has funded 55 projects in Scotland in the last almost 3-years to a tune of £8M.
