Innovate UK focuses on thematic areas which are most likely to generate UK economic growth and which address global challenges and opportunities – and on competencies and technologies which enable innovation in these areas. In making investments they apply 4 key criteria:
- is there a large (global) market opportunity
- Does the UK have the capability to develop and exploit the technology?
- Is the idea “ready” – is the timing right?
- Can Innovate UK make a difference?
If you have an idea or a challenge that meets the criteria for funding, come and talk to the Business Team at businessteam[at]bham.ac.uk.
Calls are in the areas:
Agriculture and Food
Health & Care
