Innovation, research and development grants



For many businesses, research and development (R&D) can represent a large overhead. If you need help with bringing new products or services to market, or getting your R&D project of the ground, support is available to help you innovate and grow.

This guide aims to give you an overview of the extensive range of grants, support and tax reliefs available for businesses undertaking R&D and innovation. Some initiatives operate in Northern Ireland only. Others work across the UK and the whole of Europe.

It is worth considering all the options. The right type of support can speed up the development of your new product or service, boost your R&D spend and ensure that you get a maximum return on your R&D investment.
