Innovate UK is keen to encourage and support the design of connected energy system projects in Northern Ireland. This workshop will outline funding availability, eligible costs and the types of projects Innovate UK is keen to support. This will include guidance on how to make a strong application and how to encourage collaboration, networking and cluster development.
As well as outlining what new funding is available, this workshop will also provide some insight into what a good project looks like and how to enable the formation of local clusters to make a strong case for support.
The event is primarily targeted at:
- energy companies
- technology providers
- public bodies
- government and academia
We look forward to you joining us in what will be an insightful and engaging afternoon.
