R&D funding for Cornish businesses

Funding and support to help your idea fly. 

Have you got an idea for a product or service, but not sure how to develop it? Do you want access to specialist information and expertise? Do you want to work with research institutions?

We can help your business with the following:

Understand the market

Unsure how your product or service can add value to the aerospace & space sectors? How can satellite data enhance your software? Our fully funded experts can help you understand the opportunity.

We can support you to go and meet potential customers, suppliers and experts to confirm if your product or service is commercially viable.

Want to visit a conference or trade show to validate the market opportunity? Need some market research done for you? There are grants of up to £10k are available

Develop the product

We can match fund your R&D projects. Typical grants are an average of £60K for a £120K project but some businesses only need a small amount.

Unlock the market

We don’t just offer you funding, you can benefit from expert advice to ensure your product can be supplied to your customers.

We can fund accreditation’s such as Supply Chains for the 21st Century (SC21), a nationally recognised change management toolkit, or Aerospace Management training, ensuring safety and compliance with the BS EN 9100 standard – opening up opportunities for you to engage with the biggest players in the aerospace industry.

We offer access to space and aerospace technology experts, or IP lawyers, who can help accelerate the stage where you can demonstrate your product and take it to market. We can also fund a G-Cloud certification.  We will organise all of this for you, and signpost you to other services and opportunities you can benefit from.

Your business is in a prime position to take advantage of new opportunities for manufacturing in space and aerospace applications.

Benefit from an increased profile through our promotional support

We like to shout from the rooftops about the products and services our businesses are developing and have gained coverage for them in publications across the UK.  If you want to see your name in lights, we can help you secure coverage of the product and service you’re developing with us.
