I missed that - does it have to be a collaboration?

Many innovators are self employed - why do you exclude them from your competitions - or force them into PAYE, which is a much less tax efficient status for their work?

Can you tell us more about the October/November call please?

Who do we email to review the scope of our idea?
George Rees - Innovation Bid Writer

Folks, from experience on previous bids, the answers to the 10 questions is limited to text-only, with basic formatting. Also, References, are included in the text-box. So, References do contribute to your word-count. The exception to this (for some Qs only) is the Appendices, these are uploaded as PDF with a page-limit, not a word limit.

For very early companies, who don't have access to matched funding, how would you advise to proceed? A successful UKRI award would be tempting to investors, but would you have to arrange the matched funding within 90 days of award?
Rachel Hoyle

Are there any health topics that will score higher?
Michal
01:06:21
How big is the overall applications in terms of numbers of pages/words?
George Rees - Innovation Bid Writer
01:07:36
Michal, if it’s normal IFS 10-questions, then each is limited to 400 words, plus 4 appendices which have page limits of 2 or 4. Hope that helps.

Does the business plan needs to materialise strictly within the UK market?
Michal Kowalski

Thank you Michael
Michal Kowalski

Could we start the project now and fund it half way through from April 2022 if awarded
Samantha Brooks
