Debra Carr, Innovation Partner for Scotland

DASA – Defence and Security Accelerator, focuses on innovations which can provide advantage to defence and national security to protect the UK from its adversaries.

''I don’t think you’ll be interested, but …” – that’s how people who first meet Debra commonly start the discussion. Typically, these idea generators have never been funded in the Defence and Security sectors before, but have transferable ideas from other sectors, including Oil and Gas. With a total funding budget of £40M, DASA fund technology from TRL 2 to TRL7, provide 100% funding (no matched funds required), fund anyone (sole traders, micros, SMEs, academia, Primes), takes no IP and can get you on contract in 3-weeks.
