Keynote address: a DIANA update
Emerging and disruptive technologies present opportunities and threats - the NATO Alliance must adapt to keep pace. Our Defence Innovation Accelerator for the North Atlantic (DIANA) seeks to unite the best and brightest innovators across the Alliance to ensure that we are well-prepared to protect 31 nations and nearly one billion citizens. DIANA provides deep tech and dual-use innovators with access to NATO resources including grant funding, accelerator programming, and pathways to adapt their solutions for defence and security needs. Our DisTec Chairman, Mr. James White, is a member of the 24 person team that has been selected from across the NATO Alliance to establish this exciting new innovation accelerator. During this 30 minute session, James will do a deep dive into DIANA, give you a progress update on the accelerator launch, and provide you practical tips on how you can engage with NATO in new and different ways through DIANA, whether you are a small and innovative company or a large defence prime contractor. We look forward to seeing you at this engaging session.
