Innovate UK is opening two collaborative research and development competitions next week!

The first aims to support collaborations between UK and German firms and the second between UK firms and companies in Singapore.

Up to £400k is available for UK participants in the UK-Germany competition, which is similar to Innovate UK Smart Grants in that it doesn’t have a technological or sector focus but aims to support R&D with a clear route to commercialisation. The deadline for submitting bids to Innovate UK for this competition is on 7 June 2023.

Up to £350k is available to UK participants in the UK-Singapore competition, which does have a focus around Advanced Manufacturing and Materials, Digital Health, Clean energy with a particular focus on Hydrogen and Smart Cities. The deadline for this competition is on 3 May 2023.
