Innovate UK offering £4m in funding for projects to speed development of compound semiconductors applications

UK Government agency Innovate UK (formerly the Technology Strategy Board) is inviting businesses to apply for a share of £4m in funding that it is investing to help speed the development of new applications for compound semiconductors.

Since 2000, the UK has invested nearly £750m in of compound semiconductor development. The global market is forecast to grow to about £125bn by 2025, and it is reckoned that the UK is well placed to exploit this market.

The aim of the funding competition is to ensure that UK businesses can respond to market opportunities in compound semiconductors. Innovate UK is therefore seeking proposals with large and scalable commercial potential in areas such as power electronics, RF/microwave, photonics and sensors.

Lasting between 6 months and 15 months, the total costs of a project are expected to range from £50,000 to £500,000. A project must be led by a business, but for costs of £100,000 or above it must also be collaborative. Projects may also lead to future collaboration with the £50m UK national Compound Semiconductor Applications Catapult scheme (launched in January).

The competition opens on 18 July. The registration deadline is noon on 19 October, and the application deadline is noon on 26 October. There is a briefing webinar for potential applicants on 27 July.
