STFC has launched the Bridging for Innovators (B4I) funding programme to support UK Industry to improve productivity and overcome production issues.

Science and Technology Facilities Council (STFC) has launched the Bridging for Innovators (B4I) funding programme to support UK Industry to improve productivity and overcome production issues.

B4I is designed to help companies overcome difficult product, manufacturing or process performance issues by leveraging more than £2b worth of existing government investment in large scale scientific infrastructure.

This funding forms part of the Industrial Strategy Challenge Fund (ISCF), the government’s £4.7 billion support for R&D over the next four years providing significant investment for industry-led, multi-disciplinary research and business/academic collaboration.

This programme offers funding to enable companies to work with STFC’s advanced analytical technologies, supporting expertise and capabilities based in STFC’s large scale science facilities located at the various campuses around the UK, including Harwell and Daresbury.

KTN’s Nigel Rix will be facilitating two Industry Briefings to help industry understand the programme, levels of funding available and the facilities on offer:

Full details of the funding to Industry under the B4I Programme, how to apply, are available here. B4I funding is only available for industry and is not intended to fund activities in areas such as product development or fundamental research.
