Feasibility studies

You can get up to £400,000 from Innovate UK to test a business idea and see if it will work. You could use this funding to develop a new product, process, model, experience or service.

You may also be able to showcase your completed project at a Collaboration Nation event.

Grant levels vary but you may get funding for up to 70% of your project costs if you are a business. You will need to fund the remaining costs yourself. Research organisations can get up to 100%. Projects can be collaborative or just your business working alone.

To qualify for a feasibility study award you must be a UK business or research organisation.

Proposals must be business-led. Each funding competition has a different theme. Opening dates and deadlines vary. You must apply online.
