Funding competition UK and South Korea: joint research and development


Innovate UK and the Korea Institute for the Advancement of Technology (KIAT) are announcing a £2 million joint funding call for research and development (R&D) projects under the EUREKA programme.

This will support collaborative, business led research and development (R&D) projects, which should result in a new product, industrial process or service. Projects must be innovative and involve a technological risk.

Proposals must focus on one or both of the following technology areas:

  • advanced materials for transport (air, land and maritime), with a focus on materials development
  • Internet of Things (IoT), with a clearly-identified industrial or sector application

For Internet of Things, we would particularly welcome projects using emerging technologies, such as artificial intelligence or blockchain.

Projects must be coordinated by a lead partner from the UK and a lead partner from South Korea.
