Innovation Accelerator Q & A


What are the geographical boundaries? Can applicants collaborate with national or international partners?

The IA has been offered to the WM city region which includes Wolverhampton, Birmingham and Coventry. Therefore, we are seeking the main impact of the IA to be within the WMCA/LEP geography, however partners outside of the region are acceptable.

UK based partners are eligible to claim IA funding as well as contribute co- investment into projects.

Non-UK based enterprises are not eligible to claim IA funding, although their costs will count towards the total project costs and so should be identified as private co-investment into the project.
