Innovate UK, part of UK Research and Innovation, will work with Innosuisse to invest up to £2million in innovation projects, open from 17th April 2023.

The aim of this competition is to support UK-Swiss international business-led innovation collaboration. Through grant funding Innovate UK will support UK businesses to collaborate with Swiss counterparts for their mutual global growth prospects.
