National Grid, Scottish and Southern Energy Power Distribution, The University of Manchester Intellectual Property (UMIP) and The UMIP Premier Fund (UPF), managed by MTI Partners, are pleased to announce a £1 million Co-Managed Energy Innovation Fund.

The Co-Managed Energy Innovation Fund has been created to identify and develop novel research and technologies for commercialisation and utilisation by the distribution and transmission industry to improve delivery of electricity to customers. The Fund is looking to provide funding, typically up to £100,000, enabling researchers at The University of Manchester to undertake one-year projects on innovations to demonstrate proof-of-principle.

The call is now open for Expressions of Interest which can be downloaded from our dedicated webpage www.umip.com/energy. This webpage also contains further information about the Fund, application process and key dates. Further information can also be obtained from energy@umip.com.
