Applications for the Cyber Security Academic Startup Accelerator Programme Now Open
Academics based in a UK institution can apply for a share of £800,000 to join Year 3 of the CyberASAP programme.

KTN are pleased to announce that the CyberASAP programme, after two successful years, will be running for a third year. The programme, which is funded by the Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport (DCMS) in collaboration with Innovate UK and KTN, helps academics in UK universities commercialise their cyber security ideas.

Applications are open for Phase 1 (Development of Value Proposition) of a year-long programme which will last up to four months. Successful applicants will move onto Phase 2 (Market Validation of Value Proposition) and will potentially be eligible for Phase 3 (Development of Minimum Viable Product). Throughout the programme, teams are given intensive support from industry and KTN. To find out more about Phase 1 and to apply, visit the KTN website here.

There will be a webinar for interested parties on Wednesday 13th February, from 12.15 to 14:00. Click here to register for a free place.
