DIANA launches pre-registration for initial 3 pilot Challenges

Last Updated: May 23rd, 2023

Dear Canadian industry,

NATO’s Defence Innovation Accelerator for the North Atlantic (DIANA) is preparing to launch its first 3 pilot Challenges in June 2023. The Challenges will be focused on finding deep tech innovators with dual-use solutions in energy resilience, secure information sharing, and sensing and surveillance.

Please register your interest by 12 June 2023 as a potential applicant, industry partner, investor, or other active member of the growing Allied innovation ecosystem.

The DIANA Challenge programme is a competitive call for proposals from deep tech innovators with dual-use application. Companies headquartered in NATO nations that are selected will receive non-dilutive grants as well as access to DIANA’s accelerator programme, test centres, and other opportunities to scale. There will be an additional opportunity for selected Industry Partners to provide challenge-specific mentors or event proposals in mid-June once the Challenge Programmes have been released.
