Innovate UK, on behalf of the Office for Security and Counter-Terrorism, invites registrations for its innovation fund for preventing terrorism. Funding aims to develop innovative solutions, new methods or technologies to protect vulnerable people from being drawn into terrorism. The fund supports the following type of activities:
•innovative projects developing new methods or developing new technologies with a potential replication nationally;
•projects promoting understanding and learning, identification and dissemination of best practices;
•pilot projects, including sectors covered by the prevent duty.
Preference is given to proposals that respond to the ideological challenge of terrorism and the threat we face from those who promote, protect vulnerable people from being drawn into terrorism, and work with sectors and institutions where there are risks of radicalisation that we need to address.
All organisations that can demonstrate a route to market for their solution may apply.
Projects may receive up to £100,000 each, including VAT.
The deadline for applications is 25 Nov 2015.
