Design Foundations Round 3 Competition - Webinar for Designers
Innovate UK is proposing to invest up to £1 million in early-stage, human-centred design projects. These projects will help businesses engage with customers, users and other stakeholders through human-centred research to identify high-value innovation opportunities and generate better propositions for new products, services and business models.
Innovate UK invites applications from individual, UK registered businesses for projects of up to 3 months for a maximum value of £40,000, allowing up to 70% of the total project costs to be used for sub-contracted design services. Proposals should use recognised design processes to understand customer motivations and behaviour to inspire new ideas, refine current ideas or even inform innovation strategy.
The purpose of the webinar is:
- To provide vital information for those with design capabilities (both those with design capability internally and design consultancies with existing relationships that may be interested in this competition)
- The Webinar will enable businesses to decide if Design Foundations is appropriate for their particular project and, if so, to develop a clear and compelling application.
There will also be another briefing event and as well as a several online webinars for specific audiences.
