  1. 1. Innovate UK Introduction Chris Jones Head of Emerging Technologies chris.jones@innovateuk.gov.uk Belfast Briefing #E&E2
  2. 2. Innovation doesnt just happen Strategic innovation doesnt just happen. It happens as a consequence of coordinated collaboration between business, government and research. This is where Innovate UK comes in.
  3. 3. We cant stop thinking about the future Innovate UK works with people, companies and partner organisations to find and drive the science and technology innovations that will grow the UK economy - delivering productivity, new jobs and exports .keeping the UK globally competitive in the race for future prosperity.

  15. 15. If total project costs are 100,000 or more, the project must include at least 2 grant-claiming partners working together. 6. Funding and project details We have allocated up to 15 million to fund innovation projects in this competition. All projects must involve at least one SME. A business or RTO must lead the project. Projects should last between 6 months and 3 years. We expect projects to range in total costs between 35,000 and 2 million. 6.1 Project types Your project may focus on technical feasibility, industrial research or experimental development. For technical feasibility studies and industrial research, you could receive: up to 70% of your eligible project costs if you are a small business up to 60% if you are a medium-sized business
  16. 16. carry out your project work, and intend to exploit the results, in the UK RTOs may lead a project, providing: they are able to articulate clearly why the RTO, and not one of the business participants, should lead the project they collaborate in the project with at least 2 or more businesses (one must be an SME) their involvement is no greater than 30% of the total eligible project costs the project shows a compelling route to market, most likely through the non- lead partners If total project costs are between 35,000 and 100,000, an SME can work on the project alone or with partners. If total project costs are 100,000 or more, the project must include at least 2 grant-claiming partners working together. 6. Funding and project details

The competition scope
  18. 18. Application deadline Midday on Wednesday 10 May 2017 2. The competition scope Our emerging and enabling technologies programme identifies and invests in new technologies and the underpinning capabilities that improve existing industries. Our aim is to inspire the products, processes and services of tomorrow: those with the potential to unlock billions of pounds of value to industry and disrupt existing markets. We have 4 priority areas: emerging technologies digital enabling capabilities, including electronics, sensors and photonics (ESPs), robotics and autonomous systems, and creative economy space applications This competition should help businesses broaden out innovation activities to find sources of revenue from new products, processes or services. We are looking to fund projects that meet all of the following criteria. Proposals must:
