Funding Opportunity – May2022 Update

  • Funding Opportunity – May2022 Update

    Posted by David Murray on May 9, 2022 at 9:26 am

    Hi Folks,

    As always, “welcome” to our new members, I hope you find something useful in this network!

    1. The following may be useful as an update/reminder on the structure of defence:

      1. MOD Comprises:

        • Dstl – (Defence Science and Technology Laboratory) a research organisation.
        • DE&S (Defence Equipment & Support) responsible for running projects that will be used by the Armed Services and other Government Departments.
        • Armed Forces and other departments responsible for Cyber and Security of our country.
        • DASA (The Defence and Security Accelerator) finds and funds exploitable innovation in support of the above – particularly interested in engaging with non-defence companies.
    2. Here is an update on current defence funding (DASA) opportunities. (I would guess that the technology in at least the first of these is already available in the Built Environment??).

      1. “Remote Monitoring of Sensitive Sites”, with a total of £750k available (max £75k per projects). Closing date is 18th May and more information is here.
      2. The current cycle of DASA’s Open Call closes on the 22nd June, so around 6 weeks away.
      3. “Defence Innovation Loans” programme, an opportunity for SMEs with solutions to Defence themed problems to apply for a loan of between £250,000 and £1.6 million to aid the commercialisation of the solution. You can apply at any time – see the information here.
      4. Dstl are launching the MOD’s new science and technology research portfolio at the free-to-attend “Supercharging Science” event on 7 June 2022 at the International Convention Centre in Newport. More details, including a link to the registration form, here.
      5. Coming soon! The “Defence Technology Exploitation Programme“; a new funding programme to support SMEs across the Defence sector in developing innovative technologies and winning new business, through working collaboratively with higher-tier companies. There’s a little snippet of information in this document, but much more to come very soon.

    I hope this is useful – if in doubt, contact Peter Wilkins ( to discuss your ideas.

    Very best regards,


    Dave Murray
