Grants for innovation and R&D – South West Businesses


£4 million funding for South West businesses


South West businesses are set to benefit from £4 million of funding, thanks to the re-launch of an initiative that has already helped some of the region’s most promising companies to innovate and grow.

UWE Bristol’s highly successful Innovation 4 Growth (I4G) programme will once again fund up to 35% of research and development project costs, by awarding grants of between £25,000 to £150,000.

Businesses operating in any sector, with a presence in Bristol, Bath, Cornwall, Devon, Dorset, Gloucestershire, Somerset or Wiltshire, are eligible to apply.

Applicants need to move quickly, as applications to the new round of funding close on 14th October 2015, with all projects having to be completed by 31st March 2017.

I4G is financed through the Regional Growth Fund, which supports projects and programmes that are raising private sector investment to create economic growth and lasting employment.
