Innovate UK is seeking proposals that will kick-start the delivery of genuinely new products and services, with substantial and scalable commercial potential.

The aim of this competition is to ensure that small and micro businesses in the UK are equipped to respond to market opportunities across a range of economic sectors.

The four technology areas of this competition underpin the development of high-value products and services and already contribute more than £500 billion in annual turnover to the UK economy. Innovation in these areas will keep the UK at the forefront of technological developments and their application.

The competition opens on 18th January 2016, and the deadline for registration is 9th March 2016.

Projects must be led by a small or micro business working either alone or with one other small or micro business, with total project costs to be no more than £33,000 and for projects to last up to 4 months.

A briefing event for potential applicants will take place in London on 26th January 2016, and there will be additional events in Edinburgh and Manchester.
