The Analysis for Innovators (A4I) programme has successfully run seven times between 2016 to 2022. This eighth round of the programme builds upon that experience.

The A4I programme aims to help boost a company’s productivity or competitiveness. It is focused on helping individual companies solve tricky and perhaps long running technical problems affecting existing processes. It achieves this by bringing the UK’s top scientists and facilities, often otherwise inaccessible, together with companies to address problems in innovative ways.

About the Event

Analysis for Innovators (A4I) is a very different type of programme from Innovate UK’s usual grant funding competitions. It funds collaborative innovation projects between the company and one, or more, A4I partner organisations (e.g. the UK’s leading measurement organisations). The partners available may include:

  • The National Physical Laboratory (NPL)
  • The National Measurement Laboratory at LGC (formerly known as the Laboratory of the Government Chemist)
  • The National Engineering Laboratory (NEL)
  • The Science and Technology Facilities Council (STFC)
  • Astute
  • Newton Gateway to Mathematics

Competition Funding Links: The website link for this funding opportunity will be shared during this competition briefing.
