The first phase will last six months, during which the 30 program participants from across the alliance will receive €100,000 in funding, as well as access to a network of five accelerators, to develop dual-use innovations for the alliance's key challenges.

The second stage of the challenge program will also last six months, but the amount of the allocated funding will reach 300,000 euros.

The purpose of NATO DIANA is to promote the development of dual applicability start-ups in NATO member states by promoting cooperation between innovators, researchers and end users.

One of the test centers of the DIANA program is located in the Ādaži base near Rīga, where a 5G test environment has been created, creating an ecosystem for developing and testing new generation wireless technologies.

Start-ups are invited to register for the Latvian webinar by July 31 here: weblink/register/ r16039a620fd0b8d6ea91b987fc794 aa0
