Analysis for Innovators - briefing and webcast

Posted on: 29/08/2018

Up to £3m of funding available to help UK businesses address measurement or analysis problems.


The latest round of the Analysis for Innovators (A4I) programme from Innovate UK and its partners (NPL, NEL, LGC & STFC) has now opened with up to £3m available in total for Round 3. Funding will be available for successful Round 3 A4I projects.

Partners on this project:

Companies who are interested in applying should register to attend our event on 3rd September 2018. You can attend in person at etc.venues Prospero House, Borough High Street, London, or you can register for the webcast and watch online, with a live chat facility.

A4I is a very different programme from Innovate UK – as it is designed to help UK businesses address difficult problems that restrict their potential productivity and competitiveness. The scope is very wide (chemical, physical, biological and computing) but the problems must be of a measurement or analysis nature.

A4I targets real industry problems that exist with existing products and processes. As such it is of interest to companies that have not traditionally considered applying for funding. Any size of business, with any type of measurement or analysis problem, are eligible to apply.

To submit a problem to Stage 1, you simply have 4 questions to answer:

1) What is the problem;

2) What have you tried before if anything to solve it;

3) What do you estimate the savings to the business would be if this problem is solved and why;

4) State the location and password of a short video uploaded which helps describe your problem, if you want to record one.


A pre-briefing webinar was held on 16th August and a recording of that is available.  If you can’t wait to find out more and want to have maximum time to apply, please contact Nigel Rix at KTN.


The first two rounds of the Analysis for Innovators programme have helped many companies to overcome problems that limit productivity by helping companies to use the expertise and facilities at NPL, LGC, NEL and STFC. Examples of the companies that were funded under A4I Round 1 can be found at: Analysis for Innovators winning projects.
