BEIS and Innovate UK are hosting a series of stakeholder clinics throughout the competition window to help and support businesses interested in applying for IETF funding.
The stakeholder clinics help businesses planning on bidding for Phase 1 funding by enabling them to speak directly to BEIS and Innovate UK and ask questions around potential bids, scope of the competitions, eligibility criteria, how to apply for funding, the IETF support and information services available, etc.
They provide an excellent opportunity to engage with organisations directly and we welcome the chance to be able to talk to you and help with your queries. The clinics are run on a regular basis with the next ones taking place on 15 June 2021 and 29 June 2021.
To register to attend our stakeholder clinics, please visit our registration site.
