Invest NI Innovation Voucher Scheme open until 29th May

Invest NI currently have a call open for applications for £5,000 Innovation Vouchers. This is open until 29 May 2020 at 3pm.

This will allow businesses or potential entrepreneurs to work with a public sector knowledge provider e.g. University, College or Institute of Technology (NI and ROI) on an innovation project.

Typical projects Invest NI support include:

• Helping to create or improve products, services or processes
• Access to specialist expertise in new materials.
• Tapping into research and scientific expertise

Applications are particularly welcome for projects that might help alleviate issues that businesses are facing as a result of COVID-19.

As this is the first call of a new five-year Innovation Vouchers Programme it effectively starts with a ‘clean slate’ so all applicants start afresh and can avail of three vouchers in the next five-year period (one voucher at a time). The first voucher is funded at 100% of the project cost to max £5000 and customers pay the VAT.
