Innovate UK

As the UK’s Innovation Agency, Innovate UK drives growth by working with companies to des-risk, enable and support innovation. To do this we work to:

  • determine which science and technology developments will drive future economic growth
  • meet UK innovators with great ideas in the fields we’re focused on
  • fund the strongest opportunities
  • connect innovators with the right partners they need to succeed
  • help our innovators launch, build and grow successful businesses

As part of this we run funding competitions throughout the year. Visit InnovateUK for details of our live funding competitions.
