Innovate UK Bridging for Innovators Fund

From start-ups to large corporates, Bridging for Innovators helps companies to overcome product, manufacturing or process performance issues by leveraging more than 2bn worth of government investment in world-leading science facilities.

Working closely with Science and Technology Facilities Council (STFC) research and innovation experts, companies can develop projects that address specific innovation challenges to accelerate business productivity.

By taking part in B4I, companies gain:

* In-kind funding for projects aiming to solve product, manufacturing or process issues
* Access to STFC's world-leading science facilities
* Extensive support from scientific and technical experts with proven track-records of solving complex industrial challenges

Bridging for Innovators (B4I) is an Industrial Strategy Challenge Fund (ISCF) programme run by STFC to support UK industry to boost productivity. STFC has a long track-record of working with businesses to provide tailored solutions to problems - understanding individual innovation needs and challenges and applying cutting-edge expertise and technologies to solve them.

The programme provides access to STFC's world-leading science facilities located around the UK including Harwell, Daresbury and the Royal Observatory in Edinburgh, as well as regional B4I hubs in the Midlands and South Wales.

There is no upper limit cap per project. But typically STFC's contribution to a project is up to 100,000 and each project lasts between three to 12 months. High potential projects, those that demonstrate substantial productivity benefits to the participating company, may be eligible for additional funding.
