Just thought I’d let you know that there is currently an OPEN Round of Funding running from Innovate UK for innovative business focussed projects as opposed to pure research.

Usually funding is available for specific sectors and industries but this is an OPEN round so worth considering.

Applications can come from any area of technology, science or engineering including arts, design, media or creative industries and be applied to any part of the economy.

Project costs need to be at least £25,000 and they are looking at 6-18 month projects starting in April 2019. Support for Research Stage can be up to 70% of expenditure and support for near to market development can be up to 45% of expenditure.
