UKRI's Analysis for Innovators Programme A4I will hold a roadshow event and briefing for Round 9 on Monday 21st November 2022 at the National Physical Laboratory (NPL).

A4I is a programme that gives UK businesses of any size access to cutting-edge R&D expertise and facilities to help solve problems that they have been unable to tackle using standard technologies and techniques. It might be around product reliability, cost or product lifetime.

The Newton Gateway is one of the Partners and works with businesses to help solve problems with an existing product or service.

This event specifically aims to attract new businesses who have not been through the programme before and who will not be familiar with the partners and the unique process within which the funding is delivered.

The agenda will deliver an overview of the programme through insights into the capability of each of the programme's partners, the chance to hear from businesses who have already been through a Round and the difference solving their challenges has made to them, and a chance to network over lunch and refreshments with the programme delivery team. There will be a briefing of Round 9, which will open in early November, where attendees can ask questions and better understand the two-stage application process and the eligibility criteria.

The day will start with networking refreshments at 10.30am and aim to end at 3.00pm.
