Thu 30 March 2017, 18:00 – 19:30 BST
Biztech business and technology forum is hosting a special Ask The Expert event covering best practice and opportunities for grant funding.
In association with UCMK, TBAT Innovation’s Managing Director, Matt Symonds, will give an outline of grants available and pass on hints and tips for applying for financial help.
Matt has been assisting companies grow through a mix of grant funding, technical consultancy and R&D Tax Credits for almost 10 years.
TBAT Innovation, based near Derby, has grown to a team of 16 consultants and they have successfully assisted its clients in accessing millions in R&D grants and R&D Tax Credits, vital to the continued growth of these companies.
Fredi Nonyelu, Biztech’s chairman, said: “Funding can transform the future of companies but there are a maze of opportunities and challenges in first finding the correct grants and then applying for them.
“We are delighted to have secured Matt’s services for this latest in our series of Ask The Expert events, in association with UCMK and look forward to a very productive event for both our members and guests.”
Matt said: “It becomes very difficult and time consuming for companies to identify grant funding options let alone writing the applications but it can be a very worthwhile process.
“Another issue is with R&D Tax Credits and what is eligible spend – most companies don’t think they can claim but the definition is quite broad.”

- An overview of grant funding
- Innovate UK – what is available and how to apply
- Horizon 2020 – What is available and how to apply
- Hints, tips and tricks to applying for grant funding
