Transforming Foundation industries: Investor partner selection

Innovate UK, as part of UK Research and Innovation, is inviting investors to partner with us for the Foundation Industries Investor Partnership programme (IPP). Together we will align Innovate UK’s grant funding of relevant late stage R&D projects alongside your investment in UK micro, small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) concerned with one or more of the themes of reducing resource and energy consumption.

We are seeking investor partners that want to invest in high growth potential SMEs. The SMEs:

  • must aspire to finding solutions that make the foundation industries more competitive through reducing resource and energy use
  • will be selected in a later competition

Investor partners must provide wider business skills and experience as well as financial investment.

The Transforming Foundation Industries Investor Partnership programme consists of 2 competitions:

  1. Transforming Foundation Industries: Investor partner selection , which is this competition.
  2. Transforming Foundation industries IPP: SMEs competition, which opens in spring 2021. This will be for SMEs to apply for project grant support with a clear alignment for private investment.

By entering this competition, you are entering into a competitive process. The competition closes at 11am UK time on the deadline stated.
