New grant funding £5000 worth of Innovation Vouchers to support development of your new product or service

Our friends at Anglia Ruskin University are offering a limited number of £5000 innovation vouchers to SME’s to help drive forward new and innovative ideas.

Great ideas need great minds to bring them to life. If you have an idea for a new product, process or service but lack the expertise or experience to make things happen, this scheme could help kick start and move forward your project.

The £5000 voucher can be used to access research and innovation support from ARU. You will have access to the University’s facilities, world class academics and researchers to develop your ideas and make them a reality.


The scheme is open to SME’s based in the UK seeking to build an ongoing relationship with ARU

Your project, product or service will need to be:

  • innovative and contribute towards future growth
  • consultancy, research, continual professional development or network creation and development focused
  • requiring either academic or professional expert support
  • link to relevant ARU faculty research and innovation capabilities
  • demonstrate delivery of a long-term benefit for the university
  • show match funding (demonstrated through staff time, materials or equipment or a combination) of a minimum of 25%

If you meet the above eligibility criteria and have a project you would like to pursue, the application process is very simple, complete the form here and someone will be in touch with you.
