Channeling £500 million of grant funding into innovative projects

Innovate UK exists to drive science and technology innovations that enhance the UK economy. Historically, their manual application process presented many challenges. Projects requiring investment were often delayed by the application process. WORTH have developed the Innovation Funding Service, a customer-focussed digital service that replaces all non-digital internal and external channels and services, enabling fast access to research and development funding through a digital application system. By providing a transparent, easy-to-understand service to businesses and research organisations, the service strengthens the means by which Innovate UK connects business with knowledge, partners and opportunities. IFS offers a clear, simple, time-saving and future-proof digital process to increase UK productivity and growth, in numbers and quality.

By streamlining the process for innovators, and for us internally, we are able to accelerate the time to market for new products and drive greater wealth and job creation.

Mark ‐ CEO

“The approach that was used was an Agile approach, which is very user focused. So it's very much about listening to the customer and adapting the product based on feedback from the customer, which worked very well.”
