The Defence and Security Accelerator's Highlands Roadshow
22nd October Oban ¦ 24th October Fort William ¦ 29th October Inverness ¦ 31st October Thurso

The Defence and Security Accelerator (DASA) has two Innovation Partners based in Scotland. We are delighted to invite you to attend our Highlands Roadshow. The DASA is a Government organisation that is 21-months old and has brought £3.8M of funding to Scotland so far. We find and fund innovative ideas between TRL 2 to 6/7 that might benefit the Defence and Security of the UK; we fund 100%, you retain your IP and we get you on contract typically between 3 to 5 weeks after a fund decision.

During the Roadshow, we will be supported by The ESA / SoXSA, CENSIS, Interface and The Data Lab and are interested in connecting with businesses across The Highlands over a two-week period. These events are free to attend. Come and hear about support and funding opportunities, network over lunch and book one-to-one discussions with the participating organisations. The events will be advertised on social media this week. You can sign up at the following EventBrite pages:
