Join us Tuesday 23rd March to hear from the innovative organisations who have just completed the first Security Technology Research and Innovation Grants Programme (S-TRIG), a programme funded by the Department for Transport’s (DfT) Future Aviation Security Solutions (FASS) Team and delivered by the Connected Places Catapult.
You will also get the chance to hear from a panel of organisations who have participated in S-TRIG’s sister programme – T-TRIG (Transport-Technology Research and Innovation Grants programme). They will share their experiences of participating in T-TRIG and how it helped their business to grow. To date, the T-TRIG programme has provided £5.4m of grants to support over 170 projects from across the breadth of the transport technology spectrum.
To find out details of those that have participated in the first S-TRIG click here, where you can read about the organisations and institutions’ projects ahead of joining the showcase event. S-TRIG is the beginning of a journey, leading the way for the future commercialisation of resulting technologies that could help to transform essential security services in the UK.
T-TRIG bridges the early stage, proof-of-concept funding gap in transport innovation, where small investments can de-risk emerging solutions, and is open to all businesses and academic institutions who are seeking this funding to undertake early stage feasibility studies.
