Innovate UK, part of UK Research and Innovation, will invest up to £3 million in collaborative research and innovation projects.

This programme is funded by the UK Government’s International Science Partnerships Fund (ISPF). ISPF is managed by the Department for Science, Innovation and Technology (DSIT) and is delivered by a consortium of the UK's leading research and innovation bodies, including UKRI. The £337 million fund supports collaboration between UK researchers and innovators, and their peers around the world, on the major themes of our time: planet, health, technology and talent.

The aim of this competition is to facilitate collaboration between the UK and international organisations, and in particular entities in the EU, in order to accelerate research and innovation in quantum technologies and remove technological and market barriers to their successful commercialisation and adoption in the UK and internationally.

UK registered businesses must collaborate with at least one non-linked registered organisation from a European Union Member State. You may also invite organisations from other countries to join your project.

UK registered organisations must apply through the Innovation Funding Service (IFS) portal to Innovate UK.

Your international partner will not receive any funding from Innovate UK.

In applying to this competition, you are entering into a competitive process. This competition has a funding limit, so we may not be able to fund all the proposed projects. It may be the case that your project scores highly but we are still unable to fund it.
