European Commission - Research & Innovation
The Directorate-General for Research and Innovation's mission is to develop and implement the European research and innovation policy with a view to achieving the goals of Europe 2020 and the Innovation Union.
As such, the DG contributes to making Europe a better place to live and work, improving Europe's competitiveness, growth and job creation while tackling the main current and future societal challenges. To do so, the Directorate-General for Research and Innovation supports research and innovation through European Framework Programmes, coordinates and supports national and regional research and innovation programmes, contributes to the creation of the European Research Area by developing the conditions for researchers and knowledge to circulate freely, and supports European organisations and researchers in their cooperation at international level.
Innovate UK - Technology Strategy Board
Innovate UK's vision is for the UK to be a global leader in innovation and a magnet for innovative businesses which can apply technology rapidly, effectively and sustainably to create wealth and enhance quality of life. We recognise that effective use of resources, energy and social capital is a prerequisite for long-term economic success. In promoting innovation we take account of the ‘triple bottom line' of environmental, social and financial sustainability.
The world of innovation and public grants is extremely sophisticated, often challenging and always demanding in terms of resources. We understand it in all of its complexity. We have in-house specialists in a wide variety of fields, from life sciences to aeronautics, plus all the necessary skills to act as an independent partner for any organization seeking support for innovation processes also through public funding.
