SPARK Award projects, funded by the University of Glasgow, have been launched in collaboration with the Materials KTN to support the UK Nanotechnology Community by giving UK based companies help to improve their industrial performance through the increased use of technology for product and process innovation.
Individual Awards of up to £5000 are available for UK based companies to fund problem solving, proof-of-concept technology demonstration and other development activities in the field of nanotechnology.
Application for the awards is straightforward and a rapid decision can normally be given.
The research work must be carried out by or in collaboration with The University of Glasgow and a fundamental requirement for such an award is that projects reach completion within a maximum of 4 months from the start date of the project (normally the date of confirmation of SPARK funding).
