This workshop is open to businesses and academic partners preparing for an Innovate UK Smart Award.
Innovate UK Smart grants are available for game-changing and disruptive ideas from business, through a regular, competitive application process.
Grants are for projects that can provide evidence for considerable potential to gain market share, generate economic impact and exports. It is not limited to a particular industry or technology area.
To apply your business needs either:
– an idea for a completely new product, service or process
– a brand-new use or an unprecedented use for an existing product, service or process that take it above and beyond what’s currently available
Join Northumbria University for a morning workshop to understand more about Innovate UK Smart Awards, how Smart Awards can help you access university facilities and expertise, and how we can support you through the application process.
