The fund forms part on the Government’s £4.7 billion investment in science and innovation.

Innovate UK will focus on the following 8 research areas:

  • Bioscience and biotechnology
  • Leading edge healthcare and medicine
  • Manufacturing processes and materials of the future
  • Smart, flexible and clean energy technologies
  • Quantum technologies
  • Robotics and artificial intelligence
  • Satellites and space technologies
  • Transformative digital technologies

Further updates will be made in April, but in the meantime you can contribute your own ideas into the ongoing Government consultation.
