Innovate UK is making up to £3 million available to help businesses with productivity challenges that are holding back growth.
The funding is available for companies that have challenges related to the measurement or analysis of an existing process, product or service, and that are not solvable by ‘off the shelf’ solutions.
Successful applicants to the Analysis for Innovators competition will work with some of the country’s best scientists and measurement facilities to improve their productivity.
Grant holders from previous rounds of the competition have reported boosted sales, increased competitiveness and accelerated time to market.
Innovate UK is now looking for expressions of interest from businesses of any size. Successful applicants will be invited to meet with experts, who will work with them to develop projects for grant funding.
The deadline for expressions of interest is 6 September 2018. For more information, click here.
Manufacturers with a productivity challenge can also contact the Business Growth Hub for a fully-funded productivity audit with a sector specialist.
