HELP TO ACCESS R&D FUNDING
All sectors in the Highlands and Islands are being impacted by the COVID-19 outbreak. We have research and development (R&D) funding available which will prove critical for many businesses. If you are looking to develop a new product or process this usually requires R&D, and whether it’s carried out in-house or with a partner, risk is a likely factor - which can make it tricky to finance the project.
Scotland and the UK have a very supportive network of funders for business R&D. Our team of innovation specialists are here to help develop your project from idea to commercialisation, and identify the most appropriate sources of funding. The service includes guidance on preparing applications for a range of schemes, including HIE grants, SMART: SCOTLAND and Innovate UK, as well as sector-specific funds.
