Innovolo has announced a search innovations for key workers in the Aerospace & Defence sector that are ready to be deployed immediately or in the near future to curb the COVID-19 outbreak.
The acceleration of technological development continues to profoundly change the nature of warfare. To keep up with the competition and meet today’s threats, aerospace and defense (A&D) organizations are focusing on innovation. Proposals are invited for short term projects addressing and mitigating the health, social, economic and environmental impacts of the COVID-19 outbreak.
With commercial investments in R&D now outpacing those of governments, innovation cycles are shorter and there is more international competition for technology and innovation.
There is no closing date – proposals can be submitted at any time.
Innovolo will support excellent proposals of up to 18 months duration which meet at least one of the following:
- New research or innovation with a clear impact pathway that has the potential (within the period of the award) to deliver a significant contribution to the understanding of, and response to, the COVID-19 pandemic and its impacts.
- Supports the manufacture and/or wide scale adoption of an intervention with significant potential
- Gathers critical data and resources quickly for future research use
