Innovate UK Funding Workshop

Northumbria University


RegisterThis workshop is open to businesses and academic partners preparing for an Innovate UK Smart Award.

Innovate UK Smart grants are available for game-changing and disruptive ideas from business, through a regular, competitive application process.

Grants are for projects that can provide evidence for considerable potential to gain market share, generate economic impact and exports. It is not limited to a particular industry or technology area.

To apply your business needs either:

- an idea for a completely new product, service or process

- a brand-new use or an unprecedented use for an existing product, service or process that take it above and beyond what’s currently available
