Defra and TSB Innovate for Growth Competition

17th Feb 2012

Defra and the Technology Strategy Board are launching the Innovate for Growth competition, providing up to twenty £25k grants for innovative SMEs across the farming, food and drink industries. The competition, which will be formally launched at Farming, Food and Drink Innovate for Growth Summit on 14 March, will support the rapid development of an innovative idea and demonstrate its practical feasibility. The competition will open in April, with results announced in the summer.

To promote both these competitions further, the Biosciences Knowledge Transfer Network (KTN) is organising a series of regional workshops in March and April 2012 around the UK.

These workshops will help delegates to get a better understanding of the scope of these competitions, as well as the competition process, rules and how to apply. Biosciences KTN representatives will be on hand to help with any queries related to the competition and to explain how the Biosciences KTN can help applicants with the process.
