Funding Available to Industry from STFC to support Increased Productivity

Bridging for Innovators (B4I) is a programme run by Science Technology Facilities Council (STFC) to support UK industry. B4I is designed specifically to help companies overcome difficult product, manufacturing or process performance issues by leveraging more than £2b worth of Government investment in large scale scientific infrastructure.

The programme will provide access to advanced analytical technologies, supporting expertise and capabilities to companies through STFC’s large scale science facilities located at the various campuses around the UK including Harwell, Daresbury and the Royal Observatory in Edinburgh.

B4I funding is only available for industry and is not intended to fund activities in areas such as product development or fundamental research.
