What makes a successful grant application?

  • How can you make sure your application stands out from the crowd and delivers a competitive business case?

When applying for a grant, it often requires a significant investment of time to put forward a compelling case. Yet grants can be a real enabler in realising your innovative ideas and supporting business growth. 

Our new series of free Grant Writing Briefings are designed to give you the knowledge to write a compelling grant application and answer any questions afterwards in our drop-in surgery.

The workshops are delivered by SETsquared, in partnership with the Knowledge Transfer Network (KTN) and will help delegates understand why particular questions are asked plus how to effectively structure information clearly and concisely for Innovate UK applications, as well as other grant programmes.

Who should apply?

Founders/CEOs of innovative SMEs looking to grow their businesses through the grant landscape. Businesses attending this workshop will leave armed with the knowledge and information you need to create a compelling grant application for new innovative products or services.
