Ideas welcomed for the third wave of societal and industrial challenges to tackle as part of government's Industrial Strategy
28 Feb 2018
The aim of this call is to identify the third wave of industry-led challenges in the Industrial Strategy Challenge Fund, which brings together the UK’s world-leading research with industry to tackle the biggest industrial and societal challenges of our time.
£1 billion has been allocated to the first wave of challenges. A further £725 million has been announced for wave 2, which will run in 2018 and 2019.
UK industry and research can submit proposals aligned clearly with at least one of the 4 grand challenges in government’s Industrial Strategy.
The grand challenges are:
- artificial intelligence and the data economy
- clean growth
- the future of mobility
- meeting the needs of an ageing society
