Innovate UK will invest up to £1 million in innovation projects. This competition is funded through the Commercialising Quantum Technologies programme of the Industrial Strategy Challenge Fund (ISCF).
The aim of this competition is to stimulate the commercialisation of quantum technologies in the UK through the development of early stage quantum technology opportunities.
Your proposal must identify a promising application of quantum technologies, a project to demonstrate its potential and a route to market.
Your project must:
Second generation quantum technologies are defined as those involving the generation and coherent control of quantum states, resulting in phenomena such as superposition or entanglement. Technologies involving single photon generation and quantum computing are regarded as being within scope.
Proposals should identify what future work and funding would be required to bring the project to commercial maturity.
This competition is not funding:
£1 million has been allocated to fund innovation projects in this competition.
The research organisations undertaking non-economic activity as part of the project can share up to 70% of the total eligible project costs. If your consortium contains more than one research organisation undertaking non-economic activity, this maximum is shared between them.
Your project must:
To lead a project your organisation must:
A research organisation, academic institution or research and technology organisation (RTO) cannot work alone but they can lead a project if they have a UK registered business as a partner.
To collaborate with the lead, your organisation must:
In a collaboration the lead and at least one other organisation must claim funding by entering their costs during the application.
