The SBRI programme – delivered by Innovate UK – brings together government challenges and ideas from business to create innovative solutions and is aimed at:

  • businesses that might want to apply to an SBRI competition to find out how it works and what they can get out of it
  • public sector organisations that might benefit from running an SBRI competition and how to get help to do so”
