TBAT: Innovate UK – Smart Grants update
Innovate UK has announced the next round of Smart Grants will open in August 2020.
This news comes after they paused the competitions in May 2020, after receiving over 2500 applications for the previous round.
They aim to finalise and deliver their COVID-19 recovery grant opportunities between now and August and run the next Smart Grants competition afterwards. This is to avoid the confusion of having 2 similar ‘open’ funding opportunities running simultaneously.
In the meantime…
This delay gives us a unique opportunity to prepare for the re-opening of the competition and build innovative projects and plans, ready to submit.
If you’re looking to apply to the next round of Smart Grants, we’d be happy to discuss your project and how we can help you to apply before the competition opens.
