The Minister for Defence Procurement, Stuart Andrew, has visited Imperial College’s £2 billion White City Campus to discover how it offers new opportunities for defence and security innovation.

Mr Andrew met with Defence and Security Accelerator (DASA) officials and Professor Neil Alford and Dr Deeph Chana from Imperial College London and was shown Imperial’s Incubator facility, which contains lab space for a variety of young start-up companies focused on science and technology, as well as the College’s Invention Rooms, home to the Advanced Hackspace.

The Hackspace provides a facility for 3D printing, digital manufacturing, woodwork and metalwork and a bio-lab, which is now available for Defence and Security Accelerator (DASA) to use for hackathon type events and competitions.

DASA took up residency at Central Working White City’s I-HUB and established a partnership with Imperial College London in July 2018. The partnership provides DASA with the opportunity to access new and innovative start-ups and academics from a wide range of disciplines, and encourages collaborative working between the Government, academia and the private sector.

The Defence Minister  said: “This is a wonderful example of how we are utilising DASA to reach out to partners not traditionally associated with Defence, ensuring we find and fund the best innovations for UK defence and security and keep ahead of our adversaries.”
