Funding Opportunity: Strand 2 Infrastructure Systems

January 29, 2018

Innovate UK is to invest up to £19 million in innovation projects to encourage UK business growth in manufacturing and materials or infrastructure systems. We want businesses to collaborate on new integrated solutions and business models.


The opportunity…


The aim of this Infrastructure Systems strand is to encourage innovation in infrastructure systems that provide critical services for our economy, environment and society, whilst reducing the UK’s carbon emissions by identifying and accelerating innovative clean energy technologies.


Infrastructure systems are the backbone of economic stability, growth, competitiveness and productivity in modern society. They are vital for social wellbeing and environmental sustainability.


…and how you can seize it


An eligible project, in infrastructure systems must show significant innovation in one or more of our priority areas, which are:

  • smart infrastructure

  • energy

  • connected transport

  • urban living


Proposals must improve business growth and productivity or create export opportunities for at least one UK SME involved in the project.


Don’t panic – we’ve got you!


If we’ve piqued your interest but it sounds like a lot of hassle, or you’re keen to apply but are unsure of where to begin, don’t worry; that’s what we’re here for.


Innovation Point was built to help companies like yours find and secure opportunities just like this, and it doesn’t stop there. We’re able to support you throughout the proposal, be it project management, bid development support, pitch training, or just about anything else. Just ask!
