Share this event:
Join the Defence and Security Accelerator (DASA) as they journey across the Borderlands and discover how DASA finds and funds innovation.

DASA will be journeying across the country this June, stopping at locations on both sides of the border from Carlisle to Alnwick, to host briefings aimed at interested parties from academia and industry.

Join us at our event in Dumfries, to hear an overview of DASA and our funding opportunities from Dr Debra Carr, our Innovation Partner for Scotland. You will also have the chance to hear about The Crichton Trust and S5G Connect Dumfries, and their offers to businesses. In the afternoon, Holoxica Ltd will present on their experience as an SME funded by DASA. There will be an opportunity to sign up for a 1:1 meeting on the day of the event. These will take place during lunch.

The DASA mission is for the UK to have the most innovative defence and security capabilities in the world. We achieve this by finding and funding innovative ideas from academia and industry, including SMEs and large companies, and seeking to rapidly bring them into use across defence and security.

Further information about DASA, including our competitions, can be found on the DASA Website (
