Aligning with Strategy and Policy

The UK Defence Solutions Center (UKDC) oversee strategy and policy documents coming out of Defence, other areas of government, and industry. This sits alongside Scouting work with academia to bring everything together when identifying overlaps.

Where teams see overlaps and shared Challenges, the MoD uses publicly available data from the web to identify numerous factors:

  • Which companies are operating in the space
  • Defining their specialties
  • Where their funding comes from
  • The types of products they produce to the market

Once teams have built a picture against this Challenge, UKDSC will scout them with the cross-sector offering.
