Funding Competition

We are targeting and funding technologies that will enable the delivery of the UK’s net zero ambitions.

Our 2022 funding competition will feature two six-week funding windows - the first ran until the 29th April, and the second is scheduled for October. 

Businesses from across the globe applied for a share of £7 million available in the first funding window, with a maximum of £1 million awarded to each successful project. The projects supported the transition towards net zero with an obligation of trialling and deploying technology within the UK continental shelf. As well as funding, the projects also gained access to data facilities and technical expertise from industry. 

Digital and data architecture, smart assets and field automation will be technology focus areas within the £3 million second open innovation programme in October.
