D.Start Ignite Winter 2021

D.Start is an innovation and entrepreneurship program that empowers Australian researchers and small to medium businesses to connect with Defence, identify real-world science or technology applications, and attract the resources needed to translate the application to a capability. The D.Start Ignite program is an eight-week hands-on learning experience designed for research teams of 2 to 5 members to work on projects with the potential to shape Australia’s security or give our Defence Force an edge. The program is modelled on the highly successful ON Prime:Defence program and combines expert knowledge with powerful connections to increase opportunity for successful translation. The program is open to Australian small to medium enterprises, research organisations (PFRAs) and their teams working on science or technology for Defence application. Registrations close 12pm AEDT Friday 26 March 2021.
