Open Sector Competition Workshop

Date & time: 29 January 2018, 10am - 12pm

Would your R&D activities benefit from a grant of between £25,000 to £1,000,000? 

Is your research truly disruptive with high growth potential? 

If the answer is yes to both questions, we would like to invite you to a dedicated workshop about Innovate UK’s new Open Funding competition which has a closing date of the 28th February 2018. 

The scheme supports business led projects that aim to develop or demonstrate highly innovative processes, products or services that have the potential to deliver significant business growth. With a budget for the current round of £19 million, the competition is open to all sectors and will support projects at different levels of maturity from initial ideas and proof of concept activity through to advanced prototype development.

During the workshop you will be given the opportunity to understand the key requirements of the competition along with tips and tricks of how an application should be presented to stand the best chance of success. The workshop will be delivered by the Managing Director of the UK operation of an international grants consultancy, who has been working with Innovate UK’s funding programmes since 2004. You will also have the opportunity to discuss your project ideas to qualify alignment to the scheme on a 1-2-1 basis  which can be pre-booked.

The event is dedicated to Imperial companies only. If you wish to attend the workshop and book your 1-2-1 session, please contact Anca Mandruleanu, Entrepreneurial Programmes Manager -
