The Technology Strategy Board is investing up to £1.25m in feasibility studies to bring emerging imaging technologies closer to commercial use.
This competition will support projects that could enable richer, more wide-ranging information to be gained from imaging, creating new applications and value propositions, with the potential to disrupt existing markets.
Projects must be collaborative and business-led, and the competition is open to all UK-based companies and research organisations. We expect to fund feasibility studies in pre-industrial research, in which a business partner will attract up to 65% public funding of their project costs (75% for SMEs). We expect projects to last up to 12 months, with total costs of up to £150k per project.
The deadline for applications is noon on 2 April 2014.
