Come and discover commercialisation opportunities for a wide range of Proof of Concepts in an inspiring afternoon where you will hear short pitches from each CyberASAP team and have the opportunity to meet and question the teams individually. A key event for anyone with an interest in developing the pipeline of cyber security products and services so vital to keeping the UK safe.

The afternoon will also feature a keynote address from Matt Warman MP, Minister for Digital Infrastructure.

You can watch a video of last year’s event here.

CyberASAP (Cyber Security Academic Start-up Accelerator Programme) was established in 2017 to commercialise UK academic ideas. With the support of industry experts, UK cyber security researchers and their teams are encouraged to develop their innovative ideas into products and services with a clear route to market and scope for further development.

Now in its fourth year, 28 academic teams joined the programme in April 2020. 14 of those teams were selected for the final phase, developing their Proof-of-Concept demonstrators for presentation to an audience from the Cyber Security ecosystem at this special Demo Day. More details of the 14 projects are available here.

All those interested in supporting the CyberASAP ecosystem are invited to attend this online event, particularly Investors and Industrialists.
