This funding will be used to support developments that stimulate the capabilities of HE teaching and research to deliver sustainable economic impact across the nation. Collaboration across institutions is encouraged.

Please note that the closing date for expressions of interest is noon on Thursday 24 January 2013. The call document can be found at the link below:

We have worked with Hefce in developing the call and the text below is included that specifically highlights working with TSB:

In its approach to economic growth HEFCE is working closely in partnership with other funders, particularly the Technology Strategy Board. The Technology Strategy Board will be involved in the assessment of proposals relevant to its remit. We would be interested in proposals that meet joint HEFCE-Technology Strategy Board objectives. These might include:
a. Collaborative arrangements that enable deeper engagement between institutions and business, and promote activities that align with the Technology Strategy Board’s national priorities.
b. Innovative approaches for collaborations between institutions to work within the aims and objectives of Technology Strategy Board Catapult Centres.
c. Innovative approaches that align institutional innovation voucher schemes with the Technology Strategy Board’s national programme.
