Deep Digital Cornwall Grant Fund

These funding streams are available to support research, development and innovation activity at appropriate scales within eligible SMEs.

The project team can also assist SMEs in applications for larger grant awards, e.g. via UK Research and Innovation (UKRI).

Innovation Vouchers

Innovation Vouchers (up to £5k) are awarded to SMEs to work up innovative ideas that explore the development of new products, processes or services.

Use them for travel, services and purchases.

Are you a micro, small or medium-sized business registered or based in Cornwall and Isles of Scilly?

Would you benefit from £5k to explore digital technologies that will increase your turnover and grow your business?

Do these technologies link to the underground environment?

If you answered yes to these questions, you are most likely eligible to receive a £5k grant for staff costs, equipment, software, training, etc. (no requirement for match funding)!

In addition, businesses can access staff time and expertise at any of the project’s delivery partners at no additional cost.
