Smart Grants

What are Smart Grants?

Smart Grants offer match funding to UK companies across all industries to carry out R&D Projects within the areas of science, engineering and technology.

The Smart funding competition is an Innovate UK Scheme (formerly the Technology Strategy Board – TSB) and is “always open”, with six funding rounds each financial year.

There are three types of Smart Grant available:

  • Proof of Market
  • Proof of Concept
  • Development of Prototype

More information about each of the Smart Grant types is available on our R&D Grants page.
