Staffordshire University are holding a 1 hour information session on Innovate UK. Part of UK Research and Innovation (UKRI), Innovate UK seeks to bring together researchers and businesses to develop new ideas that drive productivity and economic growth.
As part of their remit to drive innovation, a range of competitively-tendered funding opportunities are managed by Innovate UK. The programmes, which encourage partnerships between research institutions and the business community, are designed to focus on highly-specific areas of development across a huge range of applications; from biofuel turbines to foot prosthetics.
This funding is not just linked to you having a product to develop, if a company is developing an idea, they may need academics to carryout research to understand what makes the product a success. This could be carrying our psychological research to see if an AI product is user friendly, or talking to people to see if an VR tool actually alleviates pain. Our academic knowledge can put us in an excellent position to really understand what makes people or businesses tick.
This event will provide information on Innovate UK funding, and give examples of projects explaining how Universities have contributed towards them. It is open to academic researchers and businesses interested in knowing more about the funding.
