About this Event
The recently approved Collaborative Networks Programme is a 3 year, £1.4M programme to deliver support for Tees Valley businesses in collaborating to bring new products and processes to market, improve productivity, create employment, reduce carbon and grow the regional economy.
Over the 3-year period, we will be delivering a range of services and support to assist micro and small to medium sized enterprises to collaborate with each other, along with universities, large enterprises and public organisations, who are committed to introducing new innovations. These include:
• Consortia Development Grants – up to £25,000 for building collaborative partnerships and delivering collaborative activities.
• Consortia Support Services – sign posting, support and mentoring to develop collaborative innovations and to access supply chain opportunities through collaboration.
Cross sector collaborations that support industrial digitisation and the circular economy are particularly encouraged.
Consortia Development Grants will be available from September 2019 with the first deadline for applications on 2nd December 2019. The wider support programmes for supply chain diversification will become available in early 2020.
These sessions will provide further information of the programme and the application process.
