Innovate UK and the Korea Institute for the Advancement of Technology (KIAT) are announcing a £2 million joint funding call for research and development (R&D) projects under the EUREKA programme.

This will support collaborative, business led research and development (R&D) projects, which should result in a new product, industrial process or service. Projects must be innovative and involve a technological risk.

Proposals must focus on one or both of the following technology areas:

  • advanced materials for transport (air, land and maritime), with a focus on materials development;
  • Internet of Things (IoT), with a clearly-identified industrial or sector application.

For Internet of Things, Innovate UK would particularly welcome projects using emerging technologies, such as artificial intelligence or blockchain.

Projects must be coordinated by a lead partner from the UK and a lead partner from South Korea.

The guidance for South Korea will appear on the KIAT website.

Innovate UK expects your joint project to have total eligible costs between £100,000 and £1 million.

MSC R&D can help your business develop by supporting you in:
• Identification of appropriate grants and competition calls for proposals
• Partner search for collaborative Research & Innovation
• Bid writing
• Project management
• Audit compliance
• Commercialisation
• Business Planning
• Market Intelligence reports
