The Centre for Defence Enterprise (CDE) is holding a networking event for science and technology providers in London on 24 June 2015.

Registration for this event is now open. Registration closes on Friday 19 June 2015 at 12:30pm.

It will take place in London at techUK, 9:30am to 4pm.

Head of Operations, Jim Pennycook, will introduce CDE and give an overview of proof-of-concept research funding opportunities for innovative science and technology providers.

CDE will launch a themed competition for fully funded contracts (up to £250,000 available for phase 1) on open-source big data insight.

In addition, Military Advisers and technical experts from Dstl (the Defence Science and Technology Laboratory) will give an overview of some areas where innovative research ideas are sought for CDE’s ongoing enduring challenge competition.

Bruce Hardie, CDE’s Technology Manager, will talk about how to create an effective proposal for CDE funding.

You’ll be able to pre-book a face-to-face meeting with CDE, Dstl and military experts to discuss your potential proposal to either the enduring challenge competition or one of the themed competitions.

You’ll also have the opportunity to meet other potential bidders, currentDstl suppliers, CDE, Dstl and military experts, and see examples of successful CDE projects.

Presentation slides will be published after the event
