Funding Opportunity — Royce Industrial Collaboration Programme

The Henry Royce Institute is inviting businesses of all sizes, as well as approved public research organisations, to collaborate with us on exciting projects founded around strong technology translation ambition and a commitment to meeting the net-zero challenge through sustainable materials innovation.

Applications for the Royce Industrial Collaboration Programme (ICP) must be submitted via a Royce Partner and include the use of Royce Partner capability.

An award can be up to £250,000 per project (from Royce) and will cover up to 80% of the full economic cost with an expected duration of 3 – 5 months.

The Royce-IOM3 Ten Point Plan Report brings a material science dimension to the Government’s Ten Point Plan to put the UK on a path to net-zero carbon emissions by 2050; the ICP takes inspiration from this report to accelerate sustainable, commercially viable net-zero innovation in advanced materials. 

We are looking to fund short-term, collaborative, business-led RD&I projects which should focus on supporting new products, processes or services that represent a step change over those currently available, or propose an innovative use of existing products or processes Read more
