We want people to quickly develop innovations and respond to opportunities and threats in new and existing markets. Funding supports the better planning of R&D and innovation projects. There are support programmes designed to encourage companies to think strategically about disruptive technologies and take time to look beyond their own organisation for inspiration and guidance. Projects should be innovative and include a level of risk, and not simply focus on routine changes or adopting best practices.
