EDA launched its 3rd Defence Innovation Prize – deadline 30 August

The European Defence Agency (EDA) launched a call for applications for its third edition of the ‘EDA Defence Innovation Prize’ contest rewarding companies and research entities with innovative and ground-breaking technologies, products, processes or services applicable in the defence domain.


This Prize aims at:

  • stimulating defence technological innovation in Europe, in particular by reaching out to non-defence R&T communities and innovators set to play an ever-bigger role in developing and producing Europe’s future defence capabilities;
  • providing non-traditional defence stakeholders (civil industries, SMEs, research organisations, universities, etc.) with an opportunity to showcase their know-how in domains relevant for defence
  • maximising dual-use synergies
  • engaging in partnerships with the defence sector.


The winning idea/concept will gain 30,000€. The deadline for submissions is on 30 August 2019 and the award ceremony for the winner will take place in November 2019 during the EDA Annual Conference.
