Now Open: ‘Expression of interest’ call 2022  


16th September 2022 


The award will support knowledge exchange activities for work funded through STFC’s core science programme in FY 21/22.  

Funded projects will focus on knowledge exchange, increasing the probability of commercialisation of the research or improving the commercial skill set of the researchers. 

Examples of activities eligible under this grant are: 

  • Innovation and commercialisation proof-of concept projects 

  • Market research project: market assessment and commercial potential studies for new technologies being developed by STFC researchers 

  • Industry / stakeholder secondments 

  • Industry / stakeholder engagement and community building workshops 

  • Skills training on commercialisation, entrepreneurship and similar professional development   


This call is aimed at relatively short term (<6 month) and small scale (up to £25K) projects. Please also contact us if you have a potential project which does not fit the timescale or budget for this call, as there may be future opportunities for larger-scale, longer-term funding. 

All project activities need to be completed by 31st March 2023
