This opportunity is particularly aimed at non-biotech innovations and of particular relevance to researchers in design, technology and social science fields.
The competition is open to UK academics at a variety of career stages and from any disciplinary background. Award is for £62,500 to fund the staff time and resources needed to meet a key milestone that demonstrates the potential of their idea. In addition UKRI are commissioning a programme of support and will fund international travel.
