The CW ITP (Complex Weapons, Innovation and Technology Partnership) is a Dstl and DGA sponsored research fund open to all UK or French companies and Academic Institutions.

How to get involved

To get involved with the CW ITP you first need to register for membership. As a member of the CW ITP you will have access to the wider CW ITP community of researchers and summary research outputs. You will also be able to engage with the CW ITP Programme Office and ETA Leads who can provide additional guidance on the operation of the framework and can provide support with the generation and submission of research proposals. Membership of the framework is required to be able to submit research proposals to the CW ITP Framework for funding consideration.

The registration process has the following steps:

  1. Submit your membership request through the CW ITP website Member Registration page
  2. In parallel check if your organisation already has a Non-Disclosure Agreement in place with MBDA for the CW ITP Framework. If not review the programme NDA, sign and send back to MBDA - you are likely to need to discuss this with your legal or commercial departments in your organisation.  Your membership application cannot be approved until a singed NDA has been received.
  3. Your application will be vetted by the relevant ETA Leads and the MBDA Programme Office to confirm your suitability to provide research in the relevant technical areas.
  4. You will receive a confirmation of which research areas you have been approved for membership of, along with login detailed for the CW ITP Members Portal where you can access additional details on the ETA research topics, download bid documentation and upload research proposals.

Requests for an ETA lead's contact details can be made from the Contact Us page.
