Cost: Free

Registrations will close early on 24/07/2018

Registration is essential.


Innovate UK, as part of UK Research and Innovation, is to invest up to £20 million in the best cutting-edge or disruptive ideas or concepts with a view to commercialisation.

UK businesses will have the opportunity to apply for a share of up to £20 million to deliver game changing or disruptive innovations with significant potential for impact on the UK economy. All proposals must be business focused (rather than pure research).

Applications can come from any area of technology, science or engineering, including arts, design, media or creative industries, and be applied to any part of the economy. Proposals can fit into, or be outside of, one or more of the Industrial Strategy Challenge Fund areas.

Projects are expected to range in size from total costs of £25,000 to £2 million and should last between 6 months and 3 years. Total eligible project costs must be within the following ranges:

  • Project duration between 6 and 18 months: total cost between £25,000 and £500,000.
  • Project duration between 19 and 36 months: total cost between £25,000 and £2 million.

The competition opens on 12th July 2018 and closes on 12 September 2018 at noon.

Organised by the Welsh Government jointly with KTN, you are invited to register to attend a competition briefing and networking event on 25 July 2018 at the Life Sciences Hub in Cardiff.
