A total of eighteen projects (listed below) from 13 organisations were successful in securing up to £30,000 to further research and technological development.
Rebecca Goulding, S-TRIG Lead, at Connected Places Catapult said:
“The Catapult is delighted to be delivering this very important programme on behalf of the FASS Team at the DfT. S-TRIG has been designed to bolster research and development activity for small businesses and universities, while encouraging collaboration and supporting the journey to commercialisation. We have chosen a great list of projects that will develop cutting-edge technology to; aid safe and secure air travel, counter the unsafe use of drones, prevent contraband entering prisons, help secure our borders and protect national infrastructure. A showcase event in April 2021 will give the organisations the opportunity to highlight their achievements and associated impact and crucially, form new industry connections to further accelerate their technology.”
The projects began in December and findings will be presented to the DfT and its partners at a showcase event in April 2021. To view full details of the S-TRIG cohort for 2020/21, see below in the cohort brochure.
