Transfer the knowledge from Innovate UK grant proposal writing into any other funding application.

What do you get?

Day 1 Part A

Innovation is the practical implementation of ideas that result in the introduction of new or improved products and services. We will focus on the specific innovation and the challenge you propose to address in the grant application.

Day 1 Part B

Teamwork drives a company’s vision and goals due to shared values and responsibilities. We will consider all team members, their skills, roles, and experience, which are relevant to ensuring successful delivery of the project.

Day 2 Part A

Having a better market awareness allows us to avoid poor decisions and optimise our good ones. We will look at the target market, route to market and commercialisation of project outputs. We will demonstrate the impact of receiving the grant.

Day 2 Part B

A budget is an estimation of revenue and expenses over a specified period. We will evaluate how you spend your grant funding and what is value for money for the taxpayer. We will justify your innovation whether it is suitable for funding.

Day 3

Successful application depends on many factors including innovation, company’s growth, team, funding, export, and commercialisation. We will review the knowledge about Innovate UK proposals and learn what to expect after application submission.

Are you ready for the Science of Getting Grants?

“The aim of science is to seek the simplest explanations of complex facts. We are apt to fall into the error of thinking that the facts are simple because simplicity is the goal of our quest. The guiding motto in the life of every natural philosopher should be,
Seek simplicity and distrust it.”
