Overview of Event:

Innovate UK is the UK’s innovation agency, driving productivity and economic growth by supporting businesses to develop and realise the potential of new ideas, including those from the UK’s world-class research base.

As part of UK Research and Innovation (UKRI), Innovate UK funds businesses (through funding competitions, Knowledge Transfer Partnerships and other initiatives), connects business-led innovation (through the Knowledge Transfer Network and Enterprise Europe Network), supports access to European funding (through National Contact Points) and supports access to technical facilities and expertise (though the Catapult network).

Through this wider Innovate UK ‘family’ of organisations, you can get help to take your innovative product or service to market more quickly and to de-risk the journey from concept to commercialisation.

This briefing will profile the latest support available to businesses across the Innovate UK family, including updates on the Industrial Strategy Challenge Fund and the cross-sector Open funding programme.
