This scheme is now open: the deadline for submissions is Monday 13 November 2017.

All applications must be submitted via the online grant system.

The application form has three main sections. A summary of the guidance notes are imbedded within the system itself; however, the guidance given in the below download link is more detailed, so we recommend you read this first.

Applications must be submitted by the leader (Founders, MDs, or C-level executives) of the engineering SME, which must be UK based. Employee-submitted applications will not be accepted.

For more details please see the guidance notes.
