UK Defence and Security is seeking research proposals to help develop its capability in Behavioural Analytics’, reports the Defence Innovation Network (DIN). Submissions close at Midday (BST) on Thursday 13 August.
It is soliciting these through the Defence and Security Accelerator (DASA) and seeking scientific and technological solutions that can provide context-specific insights into the ‘how’ and ‘why’ of individual, group and population behaviour, enabling predictions about how they are likely to act in the future. At this stage they are looking for theoretical and technological developments, beyond proof of concept, to result in working models, tools and techniques.
Phase 1 of the DASA launched in October 2018 and funded 29 projects. Now at Phase 2, this competition has £2 million (AUD$3.6 million) available to fund multiple proposals to further increase the maturity of innovations in this area. It is not compulsory to have been involved in the previous phase to apply; however, you should make yourself aware of theprevious phases and the proposals that were funded. It is expected that work for this phase will reach higher maturity than work funded in Phase 1, reaching a minimum TRL 5-6 by completion.
Submissions close at midday (BST) on Thursday 13 August 2020. For further information go to the Defence Innovation Network.
