NATO – Defence Innovation Accelerator for the North Atlantic (DIANA)

Published: March 22, 2023

Much like Canada, our allies in the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) are looking to keep pace with emerging and disruptive technologies. That’s why NATO is establishing the Defence Innovation Accelerator for the North Atlantic, or DIANA. DIANA will offer novel innovation programming across the Alliance, which will look to take advantage of the opportunities and counter the threats presented by cutting edge technology.

As Canada is a NATO member, Canadian innovators will be eligible to participate in all processes initiated by DIANA. Upon selection by the program, innovators will also be provided access to a network of accelerators and test centres across more than 20 allied nations in North America and Europe.
