Need help to develop an idea?

Posted on Friday 2nd November 2012

The University of Birmingham is delighted to announce its new Innovation Voucher competition to help businesses develop and grow.

All businesses generate new ideas but may not have the expertise or facilities in house to get them off the ground. Why not boost your organisation’s knowledge and resources by tapping into world-class expertise at the University of Birmingham?

Innovation Vouchers provide funding so that your business can work with the University to gain new knowledge and a fresh perspective to tackle a specific challenge. This is just one of the ways the University of Birmingham is embracing its role in supporting the regional and national economy. The aim is to encourage new businesses to gain an introduction to the University’s expertise and facilities and hopefully explore additional ways of working together.

The voucher can be used to fund all types of innovation, research, consultancy and testing. Key themes cover Advanced Materials, Energy or Medicine although the competition is not restricted to these areas.

Awarded on a competitive basis, up to £5,000 is available to access expertise and facilities at the University.
