Submit your proposal to the Accelerator

The Defence and Security Accelerator funds proposals for proof-of-concept research. If you already have a product, you should speak to the Defence Suppliers’ Service.

New users should click the ‘Start now’ button below. It’ll allow you to set up an account with us. You can then begin putting together your proposal for funding (or if you've already registered sign in here).

You’ll be able to save your proposal and finish it later if you need to.

You can submit proposals for both our themed competitions and the enduring competition here and they'll be assessed before we decide if we’ll fund or not.

You mustn’t submit any classified information to the Accelerator. Find out more about government security classifications.
