The Technology and Strategy Board (TSB) is the UK’s innovation agency. Its role is to stimulate innovation and promote economic growth.
The Technology and Strategy Board is funded primarily though the Department for Business, Innovation and Skills, and has an annual budget of approximately £440m.
The Technology Strategy Board will invest over £2m a year in 2013/14 and 2014/15 for Innovation Vouchers applicable to priority themes where there is currently a relatively low level of SME investment in research and development. Further funding may be available for Innovation Vouchers funded by other Government Departments or partner organisations.
There will be at least 100 vouchers for £5000 available every three months for pen testing services.
To be eligible for an Innovation Voucher:
- you need to be a start-up, micro, small or medium-sized business operating in the UK
- the idea that you want help with should be a challenge for your business that requires specialist assistance
- your idea must be applicable to one of the priority or partner themes
