What We Do
To ensure we offer international partners the best and most comprehensive Defence solutions, the DGP launched Team UK at Defence and Security Equipment International (DSEI) 2017 in London.
Team UK is the UK Government, Defence Industry and Academia working in partnership with international partners to deliver solutions. International customers benefit from a Team UK approach and a collaborative response to developing a solution. It serves as a highly efficient route to accessing the UK’s complete value chain. Being part of Team UK provides companies with wider access to market opportunities; they also gain from the advantages that close working deliver in terms of generating innovation.
Our Core Pillars
The UK Defence Solutions Centre (UKDSC) responds to international customers’ needs for innovative and tailored world-class defence solutions. Opened in March 2015 as an independent entity, it brings together the best minds from across defence in a pre-competitive, collaborative space to identify innovative and world-beating products and services. It aims to make the UK Defence industry more successful in international markets via:
- Better alignment with UK Government
- Facilitating collaboration within the UK value chain
- Identifying Innovation and investment from a broad range of sources
The UKDSC focuses on the pre-competitive phase, looking out across a 15-year horizon to understand customers’ long-term requirements, and uses this to help shape innovative and tailored products and services, leveraging the UK’s world-class defence capability, technology and skills. The UKDSC works closely with the UK Ministry of Defence (MoD), Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS) and Department for International Trade – Defence and Security Exports (DIT DSE), the UK Defence industry and academia.
This is a world first approach to collaboration in defence solutions and we believe this integrated model will position the UK defence industry as a world-leading centre of innovation.
