Innovate UK

UK Businesses will work with Innovate UK, part of UK Research and Innovation, to invest up to £3 million in innovation projects.

The aim of this competition is to match the best UK experts and cutting-edge facilities with companies that have analysis or measurement problems. Your application must describe the problem and estimate the value to your company of solving it.

Successful applicants at this expression of interest (EoI) phase will be invited to brokerage sessions with relevant analysis for innovators (A4I) partners, arranged by the Knowledge Transfer Network (KTN). These will focus on approaches to solve the applicant’s problem.

This is phase 1 of a 2-phase competition.

Phase 1 is an expression of interest.

Phase 2 is dependent on the success of phase 1. Successful applicants in phase 1 are invited to work with A4I funding partners to suggest joint projects to develop solutions for phase 2.


This competition is divided into two sections: de minimis funding with up to £1m in total for projects with costs of £25k-£50k and duration of less than 3 months (click here for details), and a larger competition with up to £3m in total for projects with costs of £25k-£300k and duration 3-12 months (click here for details). In the latter competition, only a maximum of 70% of costs can be covered, depending on your business size.
