Your all-in-one free business support hub
Up to £72 million is available to establish a core innovation hub for construction as part of the Industrial Strategy Challenge Fund.
Innovate UK has up to £72 million to invest in establishing a core innovation hub to support collaboration between industry and academia and transform the construction sector.
The funding is for UK-based research and technology organisations that already have substantive existing facilities and expertise to work with others in the construction sector, such as businesses, the research base or public sector organisations.
The sector is facing a skills crisis due to an ageing workforce. This competition aims to fund a single, core innovation hub that will develop and commercialise new digital and manufacturing technologies for construction.
To be successful in their application, the research and technology organisation will need to demonstrate there is a commitment from the private sector to invest and use the hub once it is complete.
The transforming construction challenge aims to support the construction industry to adopt the latest digital manufacturing technologies to produce safe, healthy, efficient building.
