CyberASAP Year 7: Expert support to commercialise academic cyber security innovation


Now in its seventh year, CyberASAP provides academics with the expertise, knowledge and training needed to convert their research into technologies, products and services in this key sector of the global economy. The programme creates a pipeline to move great cyber security ideas out of the university lab and into the commercial market. Cohort 7 of CyberASAPs is now open for applications! UK cyber academics who are interested in joining the programme can find out more and apply by clicking on the button below. Applications close on 19th April at 11:00.

The CyberASAP Programme 2023 is funded by the UK Government’s Department for Science, Innovation and Technology (DSIT), and delivered in partnership with Innovate UK & Innovate UK KTN. The programme has a proven track record of success, with previous participants achieving significant milestones, including investment, patents, and successful commercialisation of their products.

The CyberASAP Programme is an excellent opportunity for academic teams to accelerate their cybersecurity innovations from research to market. Through bespoke mentoring, training, and support from industry experts, this programme has a proven track record of helping teams turn their ideas into successful businesses.

We are thrilled to see what the seventh year’s cohort will bring and excited to support the next generation of cybersecurity innovators.
