Dstl and DASA will be speaking at Innovate Local: Southern Pioneers on 8 to 9 March 2021.
The virtual event is for pioneers, entrepreneurs, businesses, support agencies and practitioners interested in navigating and capitalising on the innovation ecosystem across the South Coast and neighbouring areas.
With more than 20 different sessions and workshops taking place, this is a great opportunity for anyone interested in learning about the latest innovation support on offer, both locally and nationally.
The Defence Science and Technology Laboratory (Dstl) delivers high-impact science and technology (S&T) for the UK’s defence, security and prosperity. Dstl will explain how small and medium-sized enterprises and businesses can work with defence to help protect the UK’s armed forces.
DASA, the Defence and Security Accelerator, finds and funds exploitable innovation to support UK defence and security quickly and effectively, and supports UK prosperity.
An introduction to Dstl and DASA will be presented on their stand between 1pm and 2pm each day. One-to-one appointments are available throughout the day for more detailed discussion.
The event also features:
- Local economic priorities and the growth opportunities for businesses developing new ideas across the South Coast.
- National and local support agencies to help form collaborative partnerships, undertake research and development, access funding and finance, and develop skills and talent for your business
- Networking and collaboration opportunities, to fast track innovation
- Different sessions and workshops each day; when you sign up, you will be able to choose the sessions that you’re most interested in
This event is organised by Innovate UK, Solent Local Enterprise Partnership, Venturefest South and KTN in partnership with the Catapult Network and Business Growth Hub networks.
