what is it
What is it?
  • DTI Business Support Product
  • Replaces the former SMART Scheme
  • Administered by RDA’s from 1 April 2005
  • Aligns and supports the North West’s Regional Economic Strategy
Why ?
  • Address a MARKET FAILURE that can only be addressed by public sector intervention, because it is very difficult to secure private funding on technically risky projects.
  • The grant will share the technical risk with the applicant.
  • Grant for Research and Development aims to help individuals starting up businesses and SMEs already based in England carry out research and development work on technologically innovative products and processes.
  • By offering a grant towards the costs of carrying out the research and development work, the grant will encourage businesses to carry out projects that they would not necessarily undertake without the grant and lever in to these projects finance from reluctant private investment sources.
  • National Budget £26 million per year
  • North West Budget £3.9 million per year
