KTN would like to invite you one of our competition information events for the newly opened Technology Inspired Innovation Collaborative Feasibility Studies call.
These events will cover the areas of the competition, an overview on applications, and feature brief presentations from companies who have participated in previous calls. The event will start with a networking lunch and will have further networking breaks to enable conversations and hopefully collaborations.
About the competition
Innovate UK is to invest up to £3 million in feasibility studies to stimulate innovation across four technology areas. The aim of this competition is to ensure that small and micro businesses in the UK are well positioned to respond to market opportunities across a range of technologies and economic sectors.
Funding is available across four technology areas:
Studies must be led by a business. Projects are open to companies of any size, but must be led by a small or micro company, working in collaboration with one or more business or research partners. Small or micro businesses could receive up to 70% of their eligible project costs, medium-sized businesses 60% and large businesses 50%. Projects are expected to last 6 to 15 months and to range in size from total costs of £50,000 to £150,000, although they may consider projects outside this range.
For queries about this competition, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org. KTN's team are also happy to help you find project partners and mentor your applications.
