Funding for R&D: Innovation Vouchers Round 2 opens in December
One way your business can work in partnership with LEC is through an Innovation Voucher. The Technology Strategy Board's national Innovation Voucher scheme provides funding so that your business can work with an external expert for the first time, gaining new knowledge to help your business innovate, develop and grow. It enables your business to obtain help from a range of expert suppliers - universities, further education colleges, research & technology organisations, technical consultancies and Catapult centres, design advisers and intellectual property advisers.
Innovation Vouchers are issued every three months on specific priority themes. The focus of the next round in December will be 'energy, water and waste', research areas that LEC connects across extremely well. Around 100 £5k Innovation Vouchers are available each time.
