Technology & Innovation

The MOD’s vision is for science and technology (S&T) to play a central role in defence thinking and culture, directing and applying innovative research and thinking to meet the current and future strategic needs of defence and security.

To achieve this, the MOD must ‘mainstream’ S&T into its strategic policy and decision-making and continue to deliver sustainable and cutting-edge S&T for our Armed Forces.

Knowledge Transfer Zone

The defence sector relies heavily on technology and innovation to develop new solutions to meet the challenges it is facing; however, bringing a new product or service to the market can be daunting if you don’t know how.

The Technology and Innovation Knowledge Transfer Zone will bring together some of the leading technology organisations to deliver sessions designed to keep you up to date on defence technology innovations, how to access funding and how you can bring your product to the marketplace.
