Analysis for Innovators (A4I) Roadshow 2019 - Belfast
Do you want to solve an issue that is impacting your productivity and
It might be a problem with product reliability, manufacturability/cost of
production or product lifetime.
Analysis for Innovators (A4I) is focused on helping individual companies
solve such tricky, and perhaps long running, technical problems that affect
existing processes, products or services.
A4I is a programme that gives UK businesses, of any size, access to
cutting-edge R&D expertise and facilities to help solve analysis or
measurement problems that they have been unable to tackle using standard
technologies and techniques. As such it is a different type of programme
from Innovate UK’s usual grant funding competitions. This programme’s aim is
to boost a company’s productivity or competitiveness by helping companies
work with the UK’s top scientists and facilities, which are often otherwise
inaccessible so they can address problems in new innovative ways.
A4I is a partnership between Innovate UK, as part of UK Research and
Innovation, and funding partners: the National Physical Laboratory (NPL),
the National Measurement Laboratory at LGC (formerly known as the Laboratory
of the Government Chemist), the National Engineering Laboratory (NEL) and
the Science and Technology Facilities Council (STFC).
Innovate UK expects to open the Fourth Round of this popular programme in
late February with up to £4m of funding for industry.
Regional Roadshow Events: KTN is running a series of roadshows at various
venues in the UK to outline the details of A4I in advance of the competition
opening. These roadshows will explain A4I as well as highlighting some of
the successes from previous funding rounds to help companies understand the
opportunity, the scope of the competition and discuss the application
