The Government’s funding regimes has changed since the last general elections with many schemes being cut and funding is now based on technology sectors. As such, it is difficult to summarise what is available at any particular time. We suggest that you speak to us as soon as you think you have an innovative solution to a real market need and we will research what is available and then suggest a pathway to apply for and secure grant support. Generally, SMEs can get upto 70% funding for projects of upto £1million and lasting upto 36 months of research. The research projects need to be novel leading to new products, processes or services. Importantly, the projects must demonstrate a clear and anticipated growth impact for the business leading to a significant return on investment (ROI).
