Welcome to the August 2017 edition of our grants and funding update.
This edition is focussed on funding for R&D (or research, development and innovation (RDI) as it is increasingly referred to). We have seen a number of initiatives aimed at encouraging R&D and we are aware there may be more on the way – some of these are a potential source of funding. We also contain an article on R&D tax credits written by Chris Harrison, a new high level recruit into our innovation tax reliefs team who comes with a wealth of experience in supporting companies make successful claims for this valuable relief. On a related theme we also have a piece outlining some of the commercial/structural aspects of tax and funding for innovation.
