Technology Inspired Innovation - Feasibility Studies Competition 2016 Briefing Events
These briefing events are an opportunity to find out about the specific funding rules and scope of this competition, find out how the KTN can support your application and ask questions of the lead technologists in each of the 4 technologies.
Competition Opens: 18 January 2016
Deadline for registration: 9th March 2016
Deadline for applications: noon 16 March 2016
Innovate UK is to invest up to £2 million in feasibility studies to stimulate innovation across four enabling technology areas that underpin future UK growth: advanced materials; biosciences; electronics, sensors and photonics; and information and communication technology (ICT).
The aim of this competition is to ensure that small and micro businesses in the UK are equipped to respond to market opportunities across a range of economic sectors.
We are seeking proposals that will kick-start the delivery of genuinely new products and services, with substantial and scalable commercial potential.
Projects must be led by a small or micro company, working either alone or in collaboration with one other small or micro company.
Companies could receive up to 70% of their eligible project costs.
Technical feasibility studies must be closely aligned with one or more of the likely specific areas of the 4 technologies below. Projects that can deliver across areas are especially encouraged but applicants should identify a lead area to aid assessment.
Projects should focus on early-stage technical opportunities. They should entail a significant level of technical risk and require companies to carry out most, if not all, research in-house.
Materials modelling, energy generation, the circular economy, ICT or healthcare
Synthetic biology, computational systems biology, characterisation and discovery, biobased and sustainable solutions and naturally inspired
Electronics, sensors and photonics (ESP)
Photonics, sensor systems, plastic electronics, electronic systems and power electronics
Information and communication technologies (ICT)
Data exploration, simpler user experiences, distributed computing systems, and advanced modern software engineering
Places at this event are limited, so please register as soon as possible to avoid disappointment. The organisers reserve the right to limit the number of registrations per organisation.
