Innovation Vouchers for Space

Innovation Vouchers for Space banner image

This priority theme covers any ideas within the Space supply chain or ones that require specialist knowledge or technology transfer from knowledge providers working within the space sector. 
 
The Space industry is seeking to reach out to other sectors of the UK and global economy that can benefit from space applications, data and services. 
 
All Space Applications are eligible, as are technology transfer proposals, either into or out of the space sector. 
 
The Space Innovation Growth Strategy refresh, titled the "Space Growth Action Plan" highlights areas of specific markets with high potential, including, maritime, rail, Aviation and automotive applications, Space weather, climate applications and carbon emission monitoring, locations based services and e-connectivity. However all sectors and applications will be considered.  You may wish to use the Voucher for: 
 
  • advice to improve management of intellectual property in the business as part of taking a new idea forward
  • specialist advice to incorporate design more effectively into a planned R&D project from the outset.
     

Choosing a knowledge supplier

You may already have an idea where to find the expertise you are looking for and would like some other options to consider, or perhaps you are not sure yet.
 
You may also wish to make use of the Satellite Applications Catapult Centre, at Harwell Oxford, who are available to help either as a knowledge provider or to signpost applicants to suitable knowledge providers.
 
Whatever is the case, we have put together some ideas on this portal for how to choose a supplier and details of organisations, such as our Knowledge Transfer Networks, who can provide you further information. We hope these suggestions will guide you to the knowledge you need.
