Second Innovation Challenge Defence People competition

In Spring 2018, DASA launched Phase 1 of the Defence People Innovation Challenge. Phase 1 was focused on the following 5 themes which are considered to offer the greatest scope for innovation and direct benefit to the management of people in the MOD:

  • Challenge 1 – recruitment

  • Challenge 2 – skills and training

  • Challenge 3 – retention

  • Challenge 4 – motivating the workforce

  • Challenge 5 – rehabilitation within the workforce

Overall 7 bids were successful in Phase 1 with total funding of over 1 million awarded. Phase 2 of the competition will be launched at this event and will be open to existing suppliers and any new collaborators working with them.
