Event Details

SETsquared Workshop: European and UK Innovation Grant Funding: 

How grant schemes work, and how to get some

 

Speaker: Alan Gould, Freelance Project Management Consultant

  

The EU and the UK government provide over £1bn in grant funding every year to support innovative SME's. 

 

Grants have a range of benefits for the recipients:  providing opportunities to take bigger risks in product development, allowing access to new markets more quickly, providing stability and resource levelling for a new start-up and improving cashflow during the initial investment phases.  They don't dilute equity or weaken IP ownership.

 

However, grants are public money, and dealing with government is never simple.  Time, effort and risks are involved.

 

The workshop is aimed at managers and owners of new and established SME's who are engaged in innovative product development.

 

  

Agenda:

 

This workshop will cover:

 

  • How grant funding works - the intent and principles
  • The European H2020 and Innovate UK frameworks
  • The application and assessment processes
  • How to deliver a grant-funded project
  • The  benefits and constraints

 

There will also be examples of successful grant recipients at SETsquared, and time for participants to discuss their specific technology and product development requirements.   

 

 

Objectives:

 

The workshop will allow you to understand whether grants are an option for your business, assess your chances of winning, navigate the application process, and where to go for further help.
