Technology inspired innovation – Innovate UK

Innovate UK (formerly the Technology Strategy Board) have launched a competition for investment of up to £2m in feasibility studies to stimulate innovation across four enabling technology areas.

These four technology areas are: advanced materials; biosciences; electronics, sensors and photonics; and information and communications.

The competition will fund proposals that will kick-start the delivery of genuinely new products and services, with substantial and scalable commercial potential.

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.

This competition opened on 10 November 2014 and the deadline for applications is at noon on 21 January 2015. A briefing day for potential applicants will be held in London on 25 November 2014.
