InnovateUK SMART Grant Submissions to Pause after January 2016

SMART Grant applications are usually every 2 months, however due to the budget announcemeqnt, InnovateUK has cancelled their March submission deadline.

This means that currently 21st January 2016 is the last confirmed SMART Grant submission date.

It is unknown as yet how SMART grants (and other InnovateUK funds) will change, but we hope to know more in early 2016.

We recommend that any company wishing to apply for a SMART Grant does so in January 2016.

 Get in touch before 6th January to discuss your application.
