Analysis for Innovators (A4I) roadshow
A4I can help boost productivity and competitiveness in your business through solving existing problems.
Innovate UK expects to open a fourth¬†round of the popular Analysis for Innovators (A4I) programme in late February worth up to ¬£4m.¬† KTN is running roadshows at various venues in the UK to outline the details of A4I in advance of the next round of the competition opening.
A4I is a programme that gives UK businesses of any size access to cutting-edge R&D expertise and facilities to help boost productivity by solving analysis or measurement problems that they have been unable to tackle using standard technologies and techniques.¬†It might be around product reliability, cost or product lifetime.
A4I is an investment from¬†Innovate UK, as part of UK Research and Innovation,¬†alongside funding partners the¬†National Physical Laboratory (NPL),¬†the National Measurement Laboratory at LGC¬†(formerly known as the Laboratory of the Government Chemist), the¬†National Engineering Laboratory (NEL)¬†and the¬†Science and Technology Facilities Council (STFC).
Together the funding partners run some of the most advanced facilities, techniques and technologies available in the world. ¬†A4I matches the best UK scientists and facilities with companies that have analysis or measurement problems.¬†A4I matches the best UK scientists and facilities with companies that have existing issues, a different approach from other Innovate UK funding competitions.
