Cross-Cluster Proof of Concept grant

Oct 14

We are offering businesses the opportunity to access up to £30k of grant funding for collaborative projects!

Applications are now open! 

Anchored to the critical mass of expertise, talent and capabilities on-site, Harwell Campus currently hosts three rapidly-growing clusters in Space, HealthTec, EnergyTec, and an emerging Cluster in Quantum.

Sci-Tech Daresbury hosts the North West HealthTec Cluster and is working with partners to develop clusters in Digital Tech and Space.

The cluster model encourages collaboration, knowledge sharing, and drives innovation, across areas that are important for driving productivity and growth in the UK economy.

The aim of this funding is to stimulate engagement with organisations across the six clusters:

  • North West HealthTec Clusted hosted at Sci-Tech Daresbury
  • Emerging Digtal Tech Clusted hosted at Sci-Tech Daresbury
  • Emerging Space CLuster hosted at Sci-Tech Daresbury
  • Harwell Campus Space Cluster
  • Harwell Campus HealthTec Cluster
  • Harwell Campus EnergyTec Cluster

The call invites proof of concept projects from any area related to the clusters in Space, EnergyTec, HealthTec, and Digital Tech. Your project must be business-led and involve one or more project partners from a campus cluster. We are keen to support multi-disciplinary projects, although it is not a requirement of funding.

This call also invites applications to a special highlight in quantum computing.

The call invites applications from businesses, which collaborate with one or more cluster organisation. These collaborations can be between industries or between industry and research organisations (including universities). Applicants are encouraged to collaborate across the two campuses and/or between the different clusters.

Please express your interest via email and the team will send you the application forms and guide you through the application process. Express your interest here.

All applications must be completed in full and submitted along with supporting documentation by 5:30 pm on 17 November 2021.

If you have any questions or would like further advice on the most appropriate cluster organisation to work with, please contact us. One of the team will be in contact as soon as possible. Contact us.
