Science & Technology

The Integrated Review of Security, Defence, Development and Foreign Policy published in 2021 highlighted the importance of technology in supporting the UK’s defence strategy.  With such a varied set of requirements, innovation is vital to ensure the UK defence sector is operating competitively on a global scale. 

The MOD’s vision is for science and technology (S&T) to play a central role in defence thinking and culture, directing and applying innovative research and thinking to meet the current and future strategic needs of defence and security.

To achieve this, the MOD must ‘mainstream’ S&T into its strategic policy and decision-making and continue to deliver sustainable and cutting-edge S&T for our Armed Forces.

Knowledge Transfer Zone

The defence sector relies heavily on technology to develop new solutions to meet the challenges it is facing; however, bringing a new product or service to the market can be daunting if you don’t know how.

The Science & Technology Knowledge Transfer Zone will bring together some of the leading technology organisations to deliver sessions designed to keep you up to date on defence technology strategies and innovations.
