SBRI Innovation Accelerator- Call 4


Cost: Free




The Welsh SBRI Innovation Accelerator is being run as a competitive call and is open to all Welsh Public Sector organisations.


Welsh Government seeks new SBRI competitions to support for launch in early 2019. Attendees will hear from experienced SBRI practitioners and learn how SBRI has been fostering a culture change across Government organisations and how organisations like Natural Resources Wales, Welsh Health Boards, Local Authorities and Police Forces have been using SBRI to engage with suppliers in new and exciting ways.


The Programme aims to:

  • Find innovative solutions for societal and service delivery challenges faced by the Welsh public sector.
  • Boost Wales’ innovation and economic development performance
  • Leverage substantial new R&D investment into Wales.
  • Increase public sector engagement with innovative businesses
  • Support Welsh opportunities emerging from UK Industrial Strategy


This will be achieved by:

  • Working across Government to identify and support Welsh projects.
  • Prioritise challenges to reflect the innovation strengths of Welsh businesses and Economic Action Plan.
  • Working closely with UKRI to identify strategic Innovation projects.
  • Providing support to strategic projects which align with Welsh and UK priorities

We are looking to fund technological challenges where either no solution available on the market or where existing solutions are deemed to be inadequate.Challenges will need to demonstrate scope for innovation and align with Welsh Government priorities. Typically we would expect challenges to be in the region of £200k to £1m


The objective of this event is to raise awareness of the fund for members of the Welsh public sector, with a view to submitting expressions of interest to the SBRI Innovation Accelerator
