University innovation funding


Pump priming support is available to facilitate private, public, and third sector partnerships which have the potential to lead to commercially successful innovations in physical activity, active health, and wellbeing. We are keen to engage with staff from across the university partnership.

For the 2019-20 academic year, we will provide pump priming support to facilitate partnerships with relevant commercial, public, or 3rd sector partners.  We anticipate funding 2-4 projects at ~£5k each.
