SW Peninsula City Deal Innovation Voucher Scheme, which is open from September 2014 – Spring 2015, helps start-up, micro and small and medium sized companies (SMEs) in Cornwall, Somerset and Devon to innovate and grow by accessing external expertise from a knowledge partner. This includes working with university partners such as Falmouth University. The scheme aims to build links between knowledge partners and SMEs, and offers financial support of up to 50% of the total cost for projects ranging from £10,000 to £25,000. Businesses need to be able pay the full amount up front and will then be able to claim the funds back.
The scheme is managed by Universities South West, who can help businesses complete the application form and act as a broker between businesses and the universities.
If you are interested in working with Falmouth University as part of this voucher scheme, please contact Eleanor Jubb who will be able to discuss the project and explain what innovation support Falmouth can provide.
