Centre for Defence Enterprise (CDE) funds

The Centre for Defence Enterprise (CDE) funds novel, high-risk, high-potential-benefit research to develop capabilities for UK armed forces and national security.

You can submit a CDE proposal for a research contract either at any time to our enduring competition, or in response to the technical challenges in a specific themed competition.

CDE is part of the Defence Science and Technology Laboratory (Dstl) and funds only novel, high-risk, high-potential-benefit research. If your proposal is a product, or outside of CDE’s competition space, you should speak to the Defence Suppliers’ Service, or see other ways of how to sell to Dstl.

If you need any support at admin of submitting a proposal you should speak to Gemma Moxham. Any content info can be obtained from webinars Bruce Hardie from CDE did.
