Innovate UK is to invest up to £1 million in early-stage, human-centred design projects. These projects will help businesses identify high-value innovation opportunities and generate ideas for new products, services or business models that align with customer demand.

Proposals should use recognised design processes to understand customer motivations and behaviour, inspire new ideas, support decision-making and inform innovation strategy.

We expect projects to cost no more than £40,000 in total and should last no more than 3 months.

A single UK business must lead the project, however, businesses may use up to 70% of the total project cost to sub-contract required services such as design expertise.
