NAME: Enduring Competition



FUNDING VALUE: Up to £90,000

DETAIL: The Centre for Defence Enterprise (CDE) funds innovative research that could lead to a cost-effective capability advantage for UK armed forces and national security. Part of UK MoD’s Defence Science & Technology Laboratory (Dstl), CDE invites applications for funding from small companies, academia and anyone with an innovative idea that has a potential defence application.


CDE operates a programme called “Enduring Competition” whereby propositions can be submitted at any time. The enduring competition looks for proposals that challenge our thinking and not iterative developments of current technologies. It provides some direction on what MOD’s enduring research challenges are, while still remaining open to all highly innovative ideas that challenge existing conventions and have a high potential benefit for the defence and security end user.


Themes around which CDE funding competition calls are based are:

  • Protection

  • Situational awareness

  • Power

  • Communications

  • Lethality

  • Mobility

  • Human Performance

  • Lower cost of ownership
