Defence Research and Technology Council

The Defence Research & Technology Council (DRTC) represents the interests of our members to defence stakeholders involved in the planning, funding, and conduct of research & technology and research & development within the UK defence and security markets. The Council aims to assist the MOD in the formulation of effective R&T policy and to bring greater Government awareness to the capabilities that exist within the UK technology industry. The council aims to give members the chance to discuss the immediate as well as long term future of UK R&D investment with the government bodies responsible fo setting its direction. In addition, the council provides a channel between industry and the Defence Suppliers Forum's R&D Group (RDG).
