UK Government to invest £2m to spark innovation

Feasibility study funding targets small and micro businesses

Innovate UK, part of the UK government's Technology Strategy Board, is to invest up to £2m in feasibility studies to stimulate innovation across four technology areas: advanced materials; biosciences; electronics, sensors and photonics; and information and communications.

The competition is open to small or micro business with innovative ideas. Winning projects will attract up to 75 percent of the costs of carrying out the feasibility study (with total project costs being up to about £33,000). 

Under the advanced materials category, potential proposals might include materials for energy generation including photovoltaics, solid-state and magnetic materials.  

For electronics, sensors and photonics, Innovate UK is seeking applications for innovations in areas such as solid-state lighting, communications, photovoltaics as well as power electronics devices that efficiently convert and control electricity consumption.  

The aim is kick-start the delivery of genuinely new products and services, with substantial and scalable commercial potential.

Connecting the Compound Semiconductor Industry

The 13th CS International conference builds on the strengths of its predecessors, with around 40 leaders from industry and academia delivering presentations that fall within five key themes: Ultrafast Communication; Making Headway with the MicroLED; Taking the Power from Silicon, New Vectors for the VCSEL, and Ultra-wide Bandgap Devices.

Delegates attending these sessions will gain insight into device technology, find out about the current status and the roadmap for the compound semiconductor industry, and discover the latest advances in tools and processes that will drive up fab yields and throughputs.
