Innovation Vouchers

Innovation Vouchers Banner

A little voucher could make a big difference. What could £4000 do for your business?

A lot more than you might imagine if you’re a small or medium sized business wanting to get that extra edge, or struggling with an issue that needs expert help to solve.

You can apply for an Innovation Voucher worth £4k to allow your business to work with one of our 39 highly respected universities colleges or research bodies.

It will let you tap into specialist knowledge to develop forward-thinking solutions or ideas to expand, improve or create new products, services and processes that will help you compete more effectively.

Please note, however that if there is a solution to your issue that is readily available from the private sector then it is unlikely that a voucher will be awarded.
