  5. 5. Funding Innovate UK Smart Grants: summer 2019 Deadline: 24th July Smart is the new name for Innovate UK’s ‘Open grant funding’ programme. Innovate UK, part of UK Research and Innovation, will invest up to £25 million in the best game-changing, innovative or disruptive ideas with a view to commercialisation. This competition provides funding for innovative research and development (R&D) from feasibility (including market research), through to technology or prototype testing and development stages up to (but not including) commercialisation. All proposals must be business focused, rather than pure research. Applications can come from any area of technology (including arts, design, media or creative industries), science or engineering and be applied to any part of the economy. READ MORE
  6. 6. Funding Enabling Data Access in Accountancy, Insurance and Legal Services: Innovation Lab Deadline: noon, 4th September UKRI/ Innovate UK has just launched a new funding competition as part of the Industrial Strategy Next Generation Services Challenge: Up to £3.5 million will be awarded to projects developing data access methods to enable the application of artificial intelligence (AI) and data technologies in the accountancy, insurance and legal services sector. This is a two stage competition: First, individuals can submit an Expression of Interest to join a 3 day Innovation Lab on behalf of their organisation (14th- 16th October) and 4 weeks after the Lab, the project consortia will be required to submit their proposals for assessment. READ MORE
  7. 7. Funding EUREKA: Singapore open competition Deadline: 19th September EUREKA, in partnership with Enterprise Singapore, announce a Global Stars funding competition for research and development (R&D) projects under the EUREKA programme. Innovate UK, part of UK Research and Innovation, is investing £1 million to fund UK businesses leading collaborative research and development (R&D) projects. Projects should result in a new product, industrial process or service, be innovative and involve a technological risk. Projects must be co-ordinated by a lead partner from the UK and a lead partner from Singapore. Partners from each additional country should also nominate a lead from that country. READ MORE
  8. 8. Funding Artificial intelligence-supported early fracture diagnosis: SBRI competition Deadline: 24th July Organisations can apply for a share of £240,000, including VAT, to develop an innovative AI solution for radiological diagnosis of fractures of upper and/or lower limbs. The challenge is to develop an AI or machine-based learning programme that can help healthcare organisations accurately identify whether a patient has a fracture. This is initially a classification problem (by assigning a value of yes, no or maybe). In simple terms, the task to begin with is to develop an automatic system that, with a degree of certainty, can remove from clinicians’ workload those that are definitely yes or no, leaving them to focus on the more complex images. This is an initial step towards integrating AI systems into a mainstream clinical workflow within the NHS and could be a platform for building more intelligent learning systems. READ MORE
  9. 9. Funding Using data and igital technology to deliver better adult social care: SBRI competition Deadline: 17th July Organisations can apply for a share of £1.25 million, including VAT, to develop data and digital technology to deliver better adult social care. The aim of this competition is to make adult social care provision more effective and efficient. This includes solutions that will ultimately help prevent the need for social care services in some cases. Adult social care plays a major part in keeping some of us well, independent, living in the community and out of hospital for longer. Demand is increasing however, resources are under pressure and we know that we need to become smarter in targeting support to those that need it most. We would be particularly interested in proposals for technology that can track data in real-time and join up how we deploy and sensitively prioritise our resources to the best effect. READ MORE
  10. 10. Support Programmes Tech Nation Fintech – the sector-specific scaleup growth programme Deadline: 9th July Following the success of our first Fintech cohort last year, this year’s programme is on the hunt for the UK’s very best pre Series A fintechs, to help them accelerate their growth and scale at speed. Beginning in September 2019, the programme is non-residential and happens over a 6 month period. The programme is free, with no cost or equity stake taken by Tech Nation.

The agenda includes: - 9 themed insight sessions with top fintech entrepreneurs talking about their learnings on building world-leading companies. - 5 social events with decision makers and key fintech stakeholders, such as leading financial institutions and investors, government representatives and financial regulators. 2 CTO gatherings where technical founders can exchange challenges and wins with their peers. - An international trip to the main market of interest. Last year’s trip was to New York City. READ MORE
