The Programme Directors of DUTE, the Dual-Use Technology Exploitation Cluster, have announced that the 1st DUTE OPEN DAY will be hosted by the Department for Business, Innovation and Skills (BIS) in London on 17 March 2016.
This 1-day event is free to attend and will give participants the opportunity to find out about how to work with DUTE funding and innovation opportunities as the Cluster continues to scale up.
The DUTE Open Day will offer current and future partners a timely review of DUTE's advances in boosting economic growth in the UK across sectors, with presentations from the Cluster partners:
Opportunity to Engage the Dual-Use Market for Technology & Enterprise
Attendees will have the chance to hear from funding bodies and industry partners looking to fully exploit the entrepreneurial opportunities and synergies between so-called 'dual-use' products, services and technologies that can drive innovation in both the civil and defence sectors.
Attendees will also have the opportunity to engage with the next stage of technology in the DUTE Cluster covering a wide range of sectors including smart, connected transport for air, rail and road, lightweight technology, energy generation and distribution, information and cyber economics, as well as environmental sciences.
Opportunity to Explore Access to Funding & Investment
With both UK and EU funding opportunities being presented, the event will give delegates wishing to engage with the investment community from the civilian and defence markets direct access to explore options to become part of the Cluster and work with public and private investors.
