Competition: Behavioural Analytics for Defence and Security

This Defence and Security Accelerator (DASA) competition is seeking proposals that can help UK Defence and Security to develop capability in ‘Behavioural Analytics’.



DASA are looking for scientific and technological solutions that can provide context-specific insights into the ‘how’ and ‘why’ of individual, group and population behaviour, enabling predictions about how they are likely to act in the future. At this stage of the competition we are limiting the scope to theoretical development, methodological advancement and proof of concept research.

Phase 1 of this competition has £1.6 million available to fund multiple proposals. Additional funding is anticipated to be available for future phases of this competition.

This competition closes on Wednesday 5 December 2018 at midday.
