New UKTI TR&DE Programme

EV are working in partnership with Grant Thornton on behalf of UK Trade & Investment to offer intensive specialist support for businesses that are based in the North West. 

The initiative has been established to help businesses to commercialise their R&D with a view to building and maximising trading growth opportunities.  The project will offer participants 1:1 advice and make available a programme of workshops to provide additional information and expertise to help support businesses. 

At the same time TR&DE provides £3,000 in matched funding which can be used to finance a tailored programme to assist in the development of the specific needs of businesses.  In this regard the funding can be used for a variety of purposes that may include engaging third parties to develop trading opportunities, explore new markets for the business products/services, establish and implement a commercialisation strategy, etc.
