Innovate UK have just published the 2016/17 Delivery Plan. In it, you will discover some important changes in the way they intend to support business innovation.
Key areas of the delivery plan include:
- a new sector focus – that is easier for industry, investors and government to work with
- changing the frequency and nature of our sector funding competitions – so that they are broader in scope than previously and form a single stream of innovation funding
- forming a single ‘open’ funding programme – for applications from any technology or sector
- enhancing the role of our innovation networks – in providing guidance and support to innovative businesses both nationally and regionally
