Used properly, publicly funded R&D can be a valuable way for companies to develop products, ideas and people. Successful projects and programmes in electronic systems are often built from small, carefully planned beginnings.

 

The purpose of this event is to inform organisations of the type of opportunity that is available, including SMART and KTP funding, from the Technology Strategy Board. In particular, detailed information will be given on the current KTP Call opportunity in Resilient Energy from the Technology Strategy Board.
