Investigating an Innovative Idea

Businesses who have an idea to develop an innovative product, process or service, but are not sure whether they are ready to take it forward successfully, may be able to receive help under a Grant for Investigating an Innovative Idea.

The grant will reimburse some of the costs of consultants chosen to provide expert advice on identified 'barriers' to the successful implementation of the business’ innovative idea. The project outcome is an action plan.
