Business Interaction Vouchers are used to encourage and support collaboration between academic and industrial partners. They are awarded to undertake a defined piece of work by the academic partner for the industrial partner. Awards up to £20K are awarded to the academic at 80% FEC. The amount requested from the Network must be matched at least at 80% FEC by the industrial partner. Industrial match funding must be at least 50% in cash and the remainder can be in kind.

More information and application form will be available when the second call opens, currently planned for early 2021. We will announce the dates of the next call via our members’ newsletter.
