Analysis for Innovators Programme 2018 Roadshow – Glasgow

Technology Scotland is pleased to be co-hosting the Analysis for Innovators Programme in Glasgow, taking place on February 23rd in Glasgow.


About the Programme

Measurement technology is a bit of an unsung hero – it doesn’t have a high profile but crucially affects just about every technical product or process you come across. So companies do not often think that measurement can be the cause of a problem or could provide the next step in improving their processes.

A new programme to help provide access to measurement technology facilities

The National Physical Laboratory (NPL), along with three other national laboratories (NELSTFC and LGC), have partnered with Innovate UK to launch a new programme ‘Analysis for Innovators‘, designed to help companies of all sizes get access to facilities and experts to help work on problems.

The Analysis for Innovators (A4I) programme is different in that it targets competitiveness and productivity head on, by offering cutting edge R&D, expertise and facilities to UK companies that want to solve an analysis or measurement problem from within their existing business. This could be an issue of precision or accuracy of measurement on a production line for example, which you have been unable to solve using standard available technologies and techniques.

NPL and the partner laboratories run some of the most advanced cutting-edge facilities, techniques and technologies available in the world, right here in the UK.

They will be making their expertise available first through initial free technical consultancy brokered to successful applicants to A4I, and then through the offer of financial support to allow industry access to their unique facilities and expertise in optional follow-on R&D projects. Innovate UK expect the programme to particularly appeal to manufacturing companies, especially those involved in complex supply chains, but companies applying may be from any sector.

Technology Scotland is co-hosting the Glasgow roadshow for the Analysis for Innovators Programme, which will explain the programme and how it differs from other funding competitions, both in terms of its scope and the online application process and schedule.

The Analysis for Innovators Programme will open officially in March 2018, with up to £4m on offer. Make sure to come to the Glasgow roadshow event to hear how it differs from other funding competitions, both in terms of its scope and the online application process and schedule.
