UK businesses can apply for up to £5.8 million to collaborate on a digital security by design demonstrator project in which an additional technology ‘ingredient’ is required. This funding is from the Industrial Strategy Challenge Fund.

The competition aims to:

  • widen the pool of technology and research providers in order to expand the impact of capability enabled hardware;
  • develop a market demonstrator showcasing the new security capability in a vertical industry segment or in applications that may cut across several vertical industry segments;
  • enable innovators developing secure products or services to work alongside early technology providers.

Your project must:

  • use the technology platform prototype and specify the quantity of prototype hardware boards that are needed in the demonstrator;
