Successful applications for SBRI funding through RAPID

A proportion of RAPID funding (500K) has been made available for Small and Medium Sized Enterprises (SMEs) as part of NERC's Small Business Research Initiative (SBRI). The SBRI aims to stimulate innovation in the economy by encouraging more high-tech small firms to start up or to develop new research capacities.

Four projects are being funded by RAPID under SBRI (for details see below) and the funds available for SBRI have now been fully allocated. Therefore no further SBRI funding will be available under RAPID.
