Defence and Security Accelerator (DASA): recording now available

22 June 2022

On 15 June EARC hosted the Defence and Security Accelerator (DASA). The recording from the session is now available here.

Established in 2016, DASA works across government to find and fund exploitable innovation to support the UK’s defence and security. This has been given additional priority and focus following the Integrated Review, published in March last year.

The speaker at the webinar was Peter Wilkins, Innovation Partner, South East. After gaining a degree in Aeromechanical Systems Engineering, Peter worked in a range of areas mainly related to unmanned air vehicles. He has been seconded to the MOD, working at the Maritime Warfare Centre working on issues related to the introduction of the Queen Elizabeth Class aircraft carriers. Since 2019 has been working with DASA.
