Open Programme Round 1 Success

Compass indicating the direction of funding


Whilst the Innovate UK Open Programme – Round 2 competition is now open for applications, the results of Round 1 have been announced and we are pleased to report that our grant writers achieved an industry leading 75% success-rate.


R&D Funding Group’s team of grant writers worked on 8 applications on behalf of clients in round 1 of the competition with 6 of these being successfully awarded funding. This is an exceptionally high success level with competition for these grants being very tough. The 2 applications which didn’t receive funding will be reviewed and resubmitted in round 2.
