In times of crisis, delivering innovation becomes crucial for businesses looking to pivot, adapt and grow.  You may already have a great idea that needs developing.  Or, you need to adapt your business in these changing times to be more competitive, disrupt or respond to new markets.  While it’s hard out there, it is also a time of opportunity.  There are many funds and investment opportunities available to SMEs – but writing winning bids is a complex skill. 

That’s where UWE Bristol can help you. This free course brings together experts in innovation models, project management, bid writing and funders to give you the insights and skills needed to apply for innovation funding.  

At the end of the course, you will receive bespoke support to work on your current bids and to help you articulate your pitch to funders.

UWE is committed to ensuring that our funding is accessible and open to all.  This course is designed to be relevant for SMEs or non-for-profit who are bidding for innovation funding.  If you have never bid for funding or find the bidding process difficult to understand, this course helps you to understand what funders mean by innovation and gives you practical skills to develop your own innovative ideas and turn these ideas into successful bids
