Funding competition: Innovate UK Smart Grants

An opportunity has come up to apply for a share of up to £20 million to deliver ambitious or disruptive R&D innovations with significant potential for impact on the UK economy. Our Business development manager will be able to support Greentech South members with their applications. 

  • Competition opens: Monday 18 February 2019
  • Competition closes: Wednesday 24 April 2019 12:00pm


Innovate UK, as part of UK Research and Innovation, will invest up to £20 million in the best game-changing or disruptive ideas with a view to commercialisation.

All proposals must be business focused, rather than pure research. Applications can come from any area of technology (including arts, design, media or creative industries), science or engineering and be applied to any part of the economy.

Whilst they welcome projects that overlap with the grand challenge areas, they are also keen to support projects that are entirely outside these. Working in these areas is not a requirement to be eligible.
