‘Transforming construction’ is the focus of a £170m UK-wide Government investment under the Industrial Strategy Challenge Fund, run by UK Research and Innovation. The programme aims to support industries in adopting technologies and help buildings to be constructed 50% faster, 33% cheaper and with half the lifetime carbon emissions. Part of this funding will be available to businesses across the UK to apply for collaborative research and development projects.

This Grant Writing Masterclass will focus on how to write an application for grant funding and is focused on businesses from the construction sector, though open to all.

There will be a competition briefing event in Autumn, once competition details have been announced.
