As part of the Innovate UK Delivery Plan, Innovate UK is to invest up to £15m* in innovative projects in Emerging and Enabling Technologies and up to £10m for Knowledge Transfer Partnerships.
Technologies within “Emerging and Enabling Technologies” include:
- emerging technologies: defined as technologies that are progressing in, or have recently emerged from, the research base
- digital, such as Cyber Security and the Internet of Things
- enabling technologies: such as Electronics, Sensors and Photonics (ESP) & Robotics and Autonomous Systems
- space Applications – applications or services that utilise satellite data or signals.
Applying these technologies across all sectors, the aim is to increase competitiveness for UK small- and medium-sized enterprises.
If you are interested in finding out more and exploring whether there might be opportunities for your company, there will be a briefing event at the AMRC on Tuesday 19th September. Places are limited and the event will be most useful for companies that are ready to seek funding. Register here.
This event will benefit businesses of all sizes (micro, small, medium and large) as well as academics, researchers and local authorities.
*The scope for this competition has yet to be confirmed, but is likely to be similar to the second round of funding.
