Funding Available to Industry from STFC to support Increased Productivity - Briefing events Announced

Posted on: 08/01/2018

Briefing events for the Bridging for Innovators (B4I) programme ran by STFC have been announced.

Science and Technology Facilities Council (STFC) launched the Bridging for Innovators (B4I) funding programme, in 2017 to support UK Industry to improve productivity and overcome production issues.

Designed to help companies overcome difficult product, manufacturing or process performance issues by leveraging more than £2b worth of existing government investment in large scale scientific infrastructure, more information on how to apply to receive support will be discussed in the briefing events.

This funding forms part of the Industrial Strategy Challenge Fund (ISCF), the government’s £4.7 billion support for R&D over the next four years providing significant investment for industry-led, multi-disciplinary research and business/academic collaboration.

This programme offers funding to enable companies to work with STFC’s advanced analytical technologies, supporting expertise and capabilities based in STFC’s large scale science facilities located at the various campuses around the UK, including Harwell and Daresbury.

KTN’s Nigel Rix will be facilitating three Industry Briefings to help industry understand the programme, levels of funding available and the facilities on offer:

18th January, Cambridge
25th January, Belfast
1st February, Birmingham

Full details of the funding to Industry under the B4I Programme, how to apply, are available here. B4I funding is only available for industry and is not intended to fund activities in areas such as product development or fundamental research.
