This webinar took place on Tuesday 19 May 2015 from 12:30pm to 1:30pm online.
This webinar will consist of a briefing from Jim Pennycook, Head of Operations at the Centre for Defence Enterprise (CDE), plus the opportunity for live Q&A. You’ll find out about what CDE does and how you can access our funding competitions.
CDE funds innovative research that could lead to a cost-effective capability advantage for UK armed forces and national security. We seek bids for funding from small companies, academia and anyone with an innovative idea that has a potential defence application. Our investments in science and technology research are high risk but with a high potential benefit.
CDE opens up defence and security challenges to the widest possible audience of providers, including those new to defence and small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs). CDE also works with others, including the defence industry and investors, to help take the projects it funds to market.
We fund proof-of-concept research through regular themed competitions covering specific defence and security challenges, and the monthly enduring challenge competition that addresses the most important problems in defence.
