Defence Innovation Hub

The Defence Innovation Hub wishes you a safe and happy holiday. The Hub will also be taking a short break from Christmas Day to 4 January.

During the shutdown period innovation proposals and Request for Proposal responses can still be submitted.

If you have a great idea that could contribute to the enhancement of defence capability, have a look at our pages on how to innovate in defence and refer to the Hub’s new Industry Information Guide to find out more about the Hub and our processes. The Hub will resume its consideration of proposals from Monday 4 January 2021.
