£220,000 available to innovative South East businesses

SMEs that are located in England’s South East have been invited to apply for new Innovation Vouchers that are designed to help them start new research, develop innovative technology, gain access to helpful equipment, or hire technical and expert consultancy teams.

The Vouchers are designed to make it easier for small businesses to purchase support in terms of expertise and to encourage them to access top facilities at their disposal from the UK Universities and Public Research Establishments in an effort to promote business improvement and innovative thinking.

Small businesses interested in the vouchers can find them at the South East Health Technology Alliance but should act quickly because there are only 55 vouchers available that are each worth somewhere between four and eight thousand pounds.   The funding for the vouchers comes from the South East England Development Agency as part of its larger initiative to support growth in the businesses from the South East region of England.
