Grant Funding

If you are a SME based in Swindon & Wiltshire, UWE Bristol's I4G programme can help support you to innovate, to solve new challenges, and to create new employment opportunities.

The I4G programme aims to assist research and development (R&D) initiatives from all sectors with grants of between £10,000 and £40,000 to fund 35% of total project costs. We are looking for applications from R&D projects that will create jobs in the region by developing innovative new products, technologies, processes or services.

The I4G programme has changed to an open call and each application will be reviewed as soon as it is received. There isn’t a final deadline for applications which means you can submit your application as soon as it is ready, and your project could start even earlier.

Funding will be allocated to successful projects as they are approved, so don’t miss out. Please note, if successful, your project must be completed by 31 December 2022.

When you register you will be sent a unique reference number and an application pack.​ Should you decide to apply for a grant you can then arrange a free one-to-one session with one of our business development managers to discuss your project and support you in submitting your grant application.

Check you are eligible, find out how to apply, and register your interest.
