Innovate UK is to invest up to £15 million in innovation projects in manufacturing and/or materials. We will look to fund projects that focus on identified technical or commercial challenges. These should lead to increased productivity, competitiveness and growth for UK small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs).
We expect projects to range in size from total project costs of £50,000 to £2 million. Projects should last between 6 months and 3 years.
Projects must involve at least one SME, working alone or in collaboration with other organisations. Projects longer than 12 months or with costs of £100,000 or more must be collaborative with other partners.
This competition opens on Monday 8 May 2017.
You must apply before midday on 12 July 2017.
