Innovate UK Funding

We’re committed to developing research programmes that have the power to transform industry, boost productivity and improve people’s lives. And we’re always looking to help businesses fund projects that share this commitment. 

Our team can help develop projects that bring together researchers and companies to produce innovations that meet the challenges in the Government’s Industrial Strategy.

 

What is Innovate UK? 

Innovate UK is the government's innovation agency. It drives productivity and growth by de-risking innovation and enabling businesses to collaborate with the UK’s research institutions. 

Innovate UK runs regular funding competitions designed to help businesses accelerate innovation. Funding is available for projects aligned with the Industrial Strategy, namely:

  • Artificial intelligence
  • Clean growth
  • Mobility
  • Ageing society
