Dstl presents full breadth of 2014-15 work to suppliers

Dstl Supplier Day took place on 1 July 2014 giving suppliers the opportunity to find out about how to get involved in Dstl's work. 

The Defence Science and Technology Laboratory (Dstl) hosted its third annual supplier networking day at the Kassam Stadium in Oxford on Tuesday 1 July 2014, attended by around 400 suppliers from industry and academia.

The event aimed to communicate openly which aspects of Dstl’s work throughout 2014/15 are planned for delivery externally, so existing and potential suppliers could easily see how to become involved and work withDstl.

The majority of Dstl’s programmes and project portfolios were displayed on the day, alongside the Centre for Defence Enterprise, Commercial Services and Dstl’s departments. Representatives from across Dstl were on hand to discuss individual areas of work, capability requirements and involvement opportunities. There were presentations by:

  • Programme and Delivery Director Richard Brooks
  • Chief Technical Officer Andy Bell
  • Programme Director Nick Joad

There were also interactive workshop sessions hosted by:

  • Programme Director Nick Joad
  • Operations Director Jenni Henderson
  • Maritime Account Manager David Sherburn (on behalf of Account Director Chris Gibson)

New for 2014 was the opportunity for delegates to book 10-minute 1-to-1 sessions with a Dstl Director, which proved particularly popular.

Suppliers from across industry, academia and small and medium-sized enterprises were represented on the day; including those with whom Dstlalready works in partnership, as well as those new to working with the Ministry of Defence (MOD)
