Scaling for success: the latest companies ready for growth

Scaling for success: the latest companies ready for growth

From smart socks and digital health platforms to high-speed processors and 360-degree radar sensors, we’ve welcomed 16 innovative companies to our Scale-Up Programme in March.

The Scale-Up programme supports SMEs looking to raise public grant funding and private investment to undertake vital R&D to bring their innovation to market and boost growth. Members can tap into several benefits that are tailored to match their requirements, including bid review support and academic collaborations to identify missing expertise.

Here’s a short overview of our newest members:
