Funding and Support

The UK government is frequently reviewing and creating various initiatives to support R&D, business growth, low carbon, and business efficiency improvements. SMMT has created a digital Funding and Support Guide to capture and provide members with information about current and future schemes and their availability.

The digital guide includes filters for easy identification of available international and regional funding and support schemes. Information on the eligibility, descriptions and contact details is available for each scheme.
