Innovate UK is the UK’s innovation agency, working with people, companies and partner organisations to find and drive the science and technology innovations that will grow the UK economy.

With an annual budget of over £500m, Innovate UK funds innovation (through sector competitions, Knowledge Transfer Partnerships and other initiatives), connects business-led innovation (through the Knowledge Transfer Network and Enterprise Europe Network), supports access to European funding (through National Contact Points) and supports access to technical facilities and expertise (though the Catapult network).

This wider Innovate UK family can help get your product or service to market more quickly and de-risk the journey from concept to commercialisation.

If it’s important for you to know about the very latest news on Innovate UK funding options and how experts from the Innovate UK family can guide you to the right support and collaboration opportunities for your business, join us on Thursday 15 March 2018 at Manchester Science Park for this free event.
