Smart is the new name for Innovate UK’s ‘Open grant funding’ programme.

Innovate UK, as part of UK Research and Innovation, will invest up to £20 million in the best game-changing or disruptive ideas with a view to commercialisation.

Project size 

£25,000 – £500,000 (6 –18 months)

£25,000 – £2,000,000 (19 –36 months)


This competition provides funding for innovation research and development (R&D) from feasibility (including market research), through to technology or prototype testing and development stages up to (but not including) commercialisation.

Your proposal must demonstrate a clear game-changing and/or disruptive innovative idea leading to new products, processes or services.

Projects should be business focused, rather than pure research, and can focus on feasibility studies, which may include market research, industrial research, and experimental development, if appropriate for the challenge identified and proposed solution.

Applications can come from any area of technology (including arts, design, media or creative industries), science or engineering and be applied to any part of the economy.
