Grant funding & Innovation
Billions of pounds of grant funding has been given out to businesses to support their growth from InnovateUK, EU and other funding sources. Has your businesses taken advantage of the opportunity to support your growth?
We offer a range of services to help companies to win grant funding and develop innovation strategies to grow their business. Key services include:
- Identifying funding opportunities and writing compelling grant funding bids
- Managing the project delivery and processes with funders
- Developing innovation strategies
- Creating consortiums and partnerships for collaborative research and development
Identifying funding opportunities and writing compelling grant funding bids
We work closely with you to understand the needs of your business and projects and recommend the relevant funding streams which would be available to help you to deliver those goals.
We have an outstanding success rate for winning funding across a range of schemes from UK funding such as InnovateUK to European funding such as Climate KIC. We support the bid writing to give you the best possible chance of winning the funding, so you can focus on technology development.
Managing the project delivery and processes with funders
To ensure you can spend the time growing your business and developing your products and services, we can also manage the project and work with the funders to ensure all their requirements are met. InnovateUK processes and the related administration time puts many organisations off applying, which means they often miss out on funding. We can demystify the process and take the responsibility for you, meaning you can focus on what you do best. Our support includes managing the set up processes to get your projects live, then supporting you with the claim processes, funder review processes and ensuring the project timelines are on track.
Developing Innovation Strategies
Many companies have aspirations to develop new products and services but struggle to make efficient progress as they do not have a cohesive plan to deliver the necessary tasks. We work with companies to create innovation strategies and technology roadmaps to help them to identify the most effective routes to achieve their aims and identify where grant funding opportunities can best support the growth.
Creating consortiums and partnerships for collaborative research and development
Partnership working is often advantageous when applying for grant funding. It is also an excellent way to learn from other organisations and build a supply chain for your new products from the R&D phase. We have an extensive network of industry, public sector and university contacts which we can utilise to create successful collaborations.
