£9.3 million innovation project competition brings an event to Belfast on Sustainable Cities and Communities

Innovate UK have announced £9.3 million support for innovation projects through the Demonstrate Impact competition, funded from the Global Challenges Research Fund.

The aim of this competition is to support demonstration-stage projects that have the potential to improve lives of people living in lower income countries and emerging economies. It will support projects that address one or more of the global societal challenges recognised as the UN Sustainable Development Goals through development of innovative, market-creating products and services.

Innovate UK and the Knowledge Transfer Network are running a series of briefings across the UK around the different Sustainable Development goals. The Belfast event on Tuesday 10 September will focus on Sustainable Cities and Communities.
