In line with the Industrial Strategy White Paper released last week, Innovate UK have announced further updates to their KTP programme.
These updates relate to competition deadlines. The Innovate UK priority area competitions were introduced as themed deadlines for KTP this year and some recent changes to the expected deadlines for the rest of this financial year have been released. .
The competition order for deadlines is now as follows:
- 31st January 2018 – Infrastructure Systems AND Manufacturing & Materials
- 7th February 2018 – Open call
- 14th March 2018 – Emerging & Enabling Technologies AND Health & Life Sciences
- April 2018 – Open call
As a reminder, an additional £300m has been added to the KTP budget for this financial year, so if you’re thinking of applying and have a business to partner with, now is a great time to push forward.
Please contact Rachel Clarke, KE Adviser with any KTP ideas.
