Webinar Recording: IDEaS Program for Innovators


This is the recording of a webinar hosted by WeBC (formerly Women’s Enterprise Centre) in February 2020.

Are you an innovator? Regardless if you are working from your home, an academic in a university lab or a scientist in a small or a major corporation, the Innovation for Defence, Excellence and Security (IDEaS) program is looking for your solutions to help resolve defence and security challenges.

IDEaS will support the development of solutions from their conceptual stage, through prototype testing and capability development. The program includes several elements that promote collaboration between innovators, provides developmental resources and provides opportunities to interact with the Department of National Defence’s science and military members.

This seminar will provide an overview of the IDEaS program and discuss the program elements including:

  • Competitive Projects
  • Innovative Networks
  • Sandboxes
  • Contests
