Innovation Vouchers at the University of Portsmouth
If you are an academic or a business (SME) that has an idea for an innovative business project and you want to look at ways to develop these ideas through a collaborative partnership, then the University of Portsmouth’s Innovation Voucher scheme may be the right tool to help get your idea off the drawing board and into the marketplace.
Established as an enabling resource, the Innovation Vouchers provide funding to help forge new partnerships between small and medium sized businesses and the University of Portsmouth. As a tool they are flexible and adaptable, and provide an introductory way for the University and business to start up a collaborative project or begin a longer-term collaboration. By providing opportunities for an expert from the University to work together with a business on real time problems, they can look to bring new knowledge in to the workplace, find solutions to problems and help the businesses to innovate, develop and grow. This is facilitated through matched funding of up to £5,000 for companies with innovative projects.
To find out more on how an Innovation Voucher could help your business work towards solving an individual problem and provide a bespoke solution, or kick start a longer term partnership with the University of Portsmouth then contact the Collaboration Managers through the Business Engagement Team at firstname.lastname@example.org
