The NML & Analysis for Innovators: back for Round 3!

The latest round of the A4I programme from Innovate UK has now opened with up to £3M is available in total. After initial free brokered technical consultancy sessions, de-minimus and matched grant funding options will be available for successful Round 3 A4I projects.

Analysis for Innovators (A4I) supports growth and innovation by offering UK companies access to world-leading experts and cutting-edge facilities with partners at the National Measurement Laboratory (NML) at LGC, NPL, NEL & STFC. It targets existing analysis or measurement problems within UK industry that can show a potential positive business impact, so it is of interest to companies that have not traditionally considered applying for funding.

The first two rounds of the Analysis for Innovators programme have helped many companies to overcome problems that limit productivity. Previous projects the NML has been involved in include nucleic acid measurements to develop novel cell therapy products, assay development to improve diagnostic tests, and novel online approaches for quality control of food products.

You need to be quick as the first stage of problem submission, a short simple online process, closes at noon on 6th September.

To learn more about the programme and prepare applications for this call, a briefing event (and webcast) is being organised in London on 3rd September.  You can register to attend here.
