Funding and support

No matter the size of your company, we can assist you to find regional assistance, national funding or international support streams that can help your business.

Identifying your support needs

Funding and support streams include:

  • Knowledge Transfer Partnerships
  • Innovation Vouchers
  • Keep Plus
