The Grant Report 2018, predicting the future of UK R&D grant fundingPosted 16th Apr 2018
The Grant Report 2018 has been authored by Granted Consultancy to provide the most comprehensive commentary on R&D funding in the UK and brings insight and clarity to the current and future grant funding landscape. This analysis has also allowed us to discover and report the characteristics of a successful grant applicant.
It contains crucial information for businesses looking ahead to securing project funding over the next 2 years.
In the Grant Report we have identified priority sectors, with significant increases in certain key areas and explained how businesses can take advantage of future trends including a move towards funding SME’s, regional differences and future opportunities for priority sectors.
The report also describes how delivery of the Industrial Strategy Challenge Fund will affect future funding, with the UK in the midst of a profound re-shaping of the non-dilutive funding landscape. In April 2018, Innovate UK will be merged with the UK’s Research Councils to become UK Research and Innovation (UKRI). The Industrial Strategy Challenge Fund (ISCF) will be managed by the UKRI and aims to bring together the UK’s world-leading research with business to meet the major industrial and societal challenges of our time. The Grant Report will help businesses to predict future trends and align their future projects within ISCF priority sectors such as driverless cars, clean energy, A.I. and space technology.
The report is essential reading for innovative, growing businesses, particularly SMEs, that are seeking non-dilutive funding to support and catalyse the commercialisation of their R&D projects.Back to all posts
