This Defence and Security Accelerator (DASA) competition is seeking proposals that can help UK Defence and Security to develop capability in ‘Behavioural Analytics’.

DASA is looking for 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 launched in October 2018 and funded 29 projects. Now at Phase 2, this competition has £2 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 the previous competition and the proposals we funded. It is expected that work for this phase will reach higher maturity than work funded in Phase 1, reaching a minimum of Technology Readiness Level (TRL) 5-6 by completion.

Submissions close at midday (BST) on Thursday 13 August 2020.
