Like you, we’ve been anxiously awaiting further details on the Innovation Support Grants that Innovate UK are due to offer to ‘new customers’, in light of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Here’s what we know so far:

  • Up to £175,000 grant amount
  • 100% funded
  • £50,000 or half of grant amount paid upfront
  • Short turn-around – approx. 4-6 weeks from open date to grant awarded
