GBSLEP Challenge-led Programme

22 October 2019

Grants of £5000 available for innovations which solve GBSLEP industry challenges.

GBSLEP has £5,000 grants available for winning innovation ideas which address some of industry challenges faced in Social Care, Air Quality and Transport Electrification.

Innovation Alliance is part of a consortium looking for businesses and entrepreneurs with innovative solutions to 15 challenges faced by industry in the GBLSEP area. Do you have an idea that could answer one of these challenges?

Please apply below to tell us about your idea and receive an invitation to the Challenge Events on the 25th November (Transport Electrification); 2nd December (Social Care); and 10th December (Air Quality).  Following the introduction events you’ll be invited to submit a proposal which will be assessed by our consortium and the winning entries will receive £5000 grants to enable their solutions to be suitable for industry needs. GBSLEP is also making a wider offer of additional business support, as part of the project, including four days of business consultancy expertise to help you develop your idea further.

We are especially interested in talking with companies located in these places: Birmingham, Solihull, northern Worcestershire, eastern Staffordshire – in short, within the boundaries of the Greater Birmingham and Solihull Local Enterprise partnership (GBSLEP) which is sponsoring this project.
