Support of up to £50k may be requested through this scheme, with the option of further funding (up to a total of £150k) through our venture capital partners. A typical project duration is 6 - 12 months. In additional to the financial support, successful applicants will also be offered mentorship to help develop their demonstrators into a business.
Applications will be assessed on a rolling basis, and the call will close once the funds have been allocated, or by Dec 2020 at the latest. Awards will be made to a start-up company set up by the applicants, however, the existence of the company is not necessary in order to apply, and guidance can be offered to successful applicants in doing this.
Shortlisted applicants will be asked to deliver a pitch to a panel including technical experts in quantum technology, as well as investors.
