The Brunel Innovation Voucher Scheme is specifically designed to promote collaborative innovation between Brunel and UK SMEs by offering vouchers to be used toward the costs of projects using the University’s facilities and / or its academic staff. The vouchers will be allocated to projects that help to develop new products, processes or services that will benefit the company and the UK economy.
The value of Innovation Vouchers is between £1,000 and £5,000, which covers the academic project costs. The company contributes an equal value in cash or in kind (such as staff time, materials or equipment) or a combination of both. The scheme is primarily aimed at supporting SMEs with innovation projects that are aligned with the expertise and research interests of one or more of the University’s academics and could lead to additional future collaborative interactions.
