Applying for an Innovation Grant – Expertise & Useful Links

Would you like the help of someone experienced with Grant Applications?

Update:

The UK government said that the £750m of support for R&D intensive small and medium size companies will be available through Innovate UK’s grants and loan scheme. As part of the deal, Innovate UK will accelerate up to £200m of grant and loan payments for its 2,500 existing Innovate UK customers on an opt-in basis. An extra £550m will also be made available to increase support for existing customers and £175,000 of support will be offered to around 1,200 firms not currently in receipt of Innovate UK funding.

There are a number of innovation grants available at this time, particularly focused on solving COVID-19 problems, some directly related to health and medical, others more broad in the ripple effects this pandemic is having on our nations, and consequences of lockdown – as well as the non COVID-19 grants.

I know so many members of our community in The Bigger Pie are offering solutions to the problems we’re facing, and as a result have a need to apply for these grants, and we’d like to extend this invite to the wider community.

It’s always good to be able to turn to the expertise within our community – and when it comes to experience with grant applications the exceptionally talented Helen Disney is willing to lend her expertise.

You’ll have the chance to ask Helen your questions directly, and she’ll answer as many as she can. Please email any burning questions in advance email: [email protected]

This is an ideal opportunity if you’re looking for someone experienced in successful grant applications to work with you on yours.
