The CCSs combine the respective power of specialist public and private sector partners in capability development and end user requirements.
CCSs foster open and collaborative development of high-impact, user-driven technology solutions critical to national security, at a pace and scale that could not otherwise be achieved. They provide NSTIx with a practical outlet for our core work, allowing us to develop cross-cutting capabilities, test concepts and develop best practice in co-creation.
The Co-Creation Network adapts according to national security priority needs, and currently comprises the following themed spaces: Protective Security, Defence Innovation, Cyber, Data Science, AI and Operational Technology.
Each is sponsored and operated by a different government department, and sited at various locations across the UK, near to existing clusters of relevant government, commercial and/or academic technical excellence. NSTIx provides the branding and enablers under which co-creation can thrive.
