News story: Upcoming webinars to help guide your security innovation

Innovators are key to helping the UK face key security challenges such as preventing terrorist activity and protecting national infrastructure. But it can be difficult to understand the world of UK security innovation, what the science and technology priorities are, and how your innovation can help.

To help you learn more about the UK’s security challenges, the Defence and Security Accelerator (DASA) is pleased to offer the opportunity to attend two upcoming webinars, featuring the Centre for the Protection of National Infrastructure (CPNI) and UK Counter Terrorism (CT) Policing.

Get involved for guidance on areas of focus for UK security innovation, and how your ideas might help address security challenges in the DASA Security Rapid Impact Innovations Open Call.
