UK Privacy Enhancing Technologies Challenge Prize Competition overview - UK Privacy Enhancing Technologies Challenge Prize - Innovation Funding Service (apply-for-innovation-funding.service.gov.uk)

Privacy-enhancing technologies (PETs) have the potential to help us devise data-driven, innovative solutions to tackle the most pressing global societal challenges we're facing, while preserving citizens’ fundamental right to privacy, which constitutes a foundation for democratic societies.

By enabling organisations to share and collaboratively analyse sensitive data in a privacy-preserving manner, PETs open up unprecedented opportunities to harness the power of data through innovative and trustworthy applications.

That’s why the U.K. and U.S. governments are partnering to deliver a set of prize challenges - announced at the Summit for Democracy in December 2021 - to unleash the potential of these democracy-affirming technologies. 

Applying to the UK Privacy Enhancing Technologies Challenge Prize brings the opportunity to

  • Compete for cash prizes
  • Engage with regulators, government agencies and global companies
  • Have solutions profiled at the second Summit for Democracy, to be convened by President Joe Biden, in the first half of 2023.

UK registered organisations can apply for a share of up to £700,000 to develop innovative privacy solutions to two real world challenge use cases.

By signing up you will also receive invitations to upcoming technical workshops covering both the Financial Crime Prevention and Pandemic response and forecasting use cases.
