Grant Funding

If you are a SME based in Swindon & Wiltshire, UWE Bristol's Innovation 4 Growth (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 deadline for full applications is 12:00 (midday) on Wednesday 16 June 2021.

Please note, if successful, your project must be completed by 31 December 2022.

When you register you will subsequently 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.
