£15m competition to spur energy systems innovation
Innovate UK and the Knowledge Transfer Network have begun seeking out potential participants for an innovation competition aimed at creating new infrastructure systems, including energy.
25th May 2016 by Networks
The competition will invest up to £15m in business-led innovation projects put forward by successful applicants.
It will be thrown open to a wide scope of solutions to future infrastructure challenges, but projects which aim to develop sustainable, affordable and secure energy systems, with an emphasis on urban energy systems have been identified as key.
The competition aims to encourage the development of infrastructure solutions which respond to increasing social and environmental pressures and which can provide confidence for future economic stability, productivity and quality of life.
Innovate UK and KTN will hold briefing events to inform potential participants in this funding competition about the opportunities involved. These will take place in July and will be held in Glasgow, London, Bristol and Manchester.
These events are aimed at businesses, academics, researchers and local authorities involved in energy systems, resilient urban systems and pulling in new technologies from digital, communications, sensors, electronics and novel materials sectors
