To offer further support to inventors, industry and academia, the Centre for Defence Enterprise (CDE) offers "One-to-One" surgeries to provide individual guidance to innovators. The surgery provides personal support, guidance and advice; the surgery will not be a detailed technical discussion but will offer advice on how best to shape and direct the proposal. Advice given in the surgeries is non-binding on either party.
Proposals will be discussed in a previously prepared and submitted ‘Quad Chart’ format (a one page summary of your idea, you will be sent the template); each appointment will last for 30 minutes.
After registering / from about 4 weeks before the surgery you will be sent a template for your ‘Quad Chart’, which must be returned at least a week before the surgery date. Please note that the surgery appointment will be cancelled unless a quad chart is submitted.
If more than one person wishes to attend the surgery we would ask that only the lead person registers. Please note that these surgeries are normally held in relatively small meeting rooms and we would ask that teams limit themselves to not more than four people attending the surgery.
Registration for this surgery will open 2 months before the surgery date.
