Funding opportunity for UK companies.

We told you earlier this year about the funding opportunity with Innovate UK and would like to remind you about this initiative as round 8 is about to close. We are always looking for funding opportunities for our members and UK companies should be aware of this £3M Innovate UK funding opportunity to support collaborative research.


About the Funding

Up to £3 million in collaborative innovation projects will be invested by Innovate UK, as part of UK Research and Innovation including partnerships with:

  • the National Physical Laboratory (NPL)

  • the National Measurement Laboratory (NML) at LGC group

  • the National Engineering Laboratory (NEL) and

  • the Science and Technology Facilities Council (STFC)

  • National Institute for Biological Standards and Control (NIBSC)

  • National Gear Metrology Lab (GEARS)

  • Newton Gateway to Mathematics

  • Advanced Sustainable Manufacturing Technologies (ASTUTE 2020+)

The aim of this competition is to match the best UK scientists and cutting-edge facilities with businesses that have complex analysis or measurement problems.


Your proposal must describe a measurement or analysis problem where you are seeking a solution to improve your businesses productivity or competitiveness. You must provide an estimate of the value to your business of solving it.


This is an expression of interest (EoI) competition stage. No funding is awarded at this stage.


If you are successful at this stage, you will be invited to brokerage consultations with relevant analysis for innovators (A4I) partners. These will focus approaches to solving your problem. You will work together to propose joint projects to develop solutions.

Successful stage 2 applications will be grant funded, to work with the relevant partner organisations.


This competition is split into 2 strands. These are:


  • Analysis for Innovators (A4I) Round 8 Mini Projects

  • Analysis for Innovators (A4I) Round 8 (this strand)


In applying to this competition, you are entering into a competitive process. This competition closes at Wednesday 31 August 2022 12:00pm
