Innovate UK news has moved
Businesses can now find Innovate UK stories about new initiatives and funding on the UKRI website.
You can find all Innovate UK related news – as well as news from UKRI, the research councils and Research England – on the new UKRI website.
This change is part of the transition process to unify all of UKRI’s constituent organisations’ content into one unified website.
You can also find all of the funding opportunities for Innovate UK and the 8 other organisations within UKRI in one place – the funding finder.
All on the UKRI website
Phase 2 of the website transition
UKRI’s new website launched in October 2020.
All the individual council websites, including Innovate UK, will continue to exist for the moment, but they will not publish new funding opportunities. These will be on the UKRI website.
The second phase of the website development will be complete towards the end of 2021, following a further stage of feedback and testing with users. This will include the full integration of the individual council websites into one overall site.
The new site will follow the Government Digital Service best practice standard for accessible user-friendly content. During development, an external provider was used to audit the site for compliance with accessibility standards. This included testing by users with access needs.
