Centre for Defence Enterprise online submission process

A new, much-improved online submission service launched on 12 November 2015. You’ll need to sign up for a new account to use this, even if you had an account on the previous portal. There are no longer multi-user accounts.

We’ve now switched off the old submission portal. From 16 December 2015 it’s no longer available.

The old portal wasn’t used to notify you of the funding decision on your proposal (this is done by telephone, email and post), so its closure won’t affect how you get your feedback if you’ve submitted to a past competition.

The new user-friendly process meets the government’s Digital by Default Service Standard.
