Introduction to Innovate UK
and UKRI
We work with the government
to invest over £7 billion a year
in research and innovation by
partnering with academia and
industry to make the
impossible, possible.
Through the UK’s nine leading
academic and industrial
funding councils, we create
knowledge with impact.
UK Research and Innovation
Innovate UK drives productivity and
economic growth by supporting
businesses to develop new ideas.
We connect businesses to the people
that can help them, and fund businesses
and research collaborations in all
economic sectors, value chains and
UK regions to accelerate innovation.
Innovate UK
Innovation is the key to UK’s future growth
and prosperity
• UK ranks 5th in Global Innovation Index
• Innovation accounts for up to 50% of
labour productivity growth
• Firms that persistently invest in R&D
have higher productivity
• Innovating companies are more likely
to export and generate growth

Challenge Overview
Venn Chesterton
Deputy Director – Driving the Electric Revolution
10
Driving the Electric Revolution
Power Electronics, Electric Machines and Drives (PEMD)
Identify key gaps in the UK PEMD supply chain and help industry fill them enabling delivery of Net Zero
Funding for industry
Investing £80m of ISCF funding for R&D projects
Networking and collaboration
Connecting industry, academia, RTOs & the government
Industrialisation and manufacturing
Leverage the UK’s world leading research capability in PEMD
Talent growth
Define & fill the PEMD skills gap by training, upskilling & reskilling
Power Electronics
Development of semiconductors (Si, SiC,
GaN) and their packaging to enable
switching of high power (voltage and/or
current) whilst minimising loss
Electric Machines
Conversion between electrical
energy and kinetic energy through
electromagnetic, mechanical & thermal
design optimised for each application
Drives
Intelligent digital control systems
embracing power electronics, passive
components, thermal management,
mechanical design and the overall system
Manufacturing
supply chain
Materials processing Component manufacture System integration Re-use and recycling
Driving the Electric Revolution – Supply chain
10-point plan
§ Driving the Electric Revolution is focused on
building back better, supporting green jobs, and
accelerating our path to net zero.
§ Power Electronics, Machines and Drives (PEMD)
growth will deliver high-skilled high-paid jobs that
offer the extra satisfaction of helping to make
our nation cleaner, greener and more beautiful.
§ We must look to manufacture the core technology
to enable the Green Industrial Revolution. Importing
technology will result in erosion of the sovereign
supply chain and all the skills being delivered must
encompass the manufacturing.
“If we apply the same zeal and ingenuity
to stopping climate change as we have to
tackling coronavirus, we can do so while
transforming our economy, delivering
jobs and growth across the country.”
Driving the Electric Revolution challenge funding distributed to industry through tailored
programmes addressing key opportunities in the UK PEMD supply chain: R&D, collaboration,
talent, equipment & expertise.

Types of organisations we fund
Compliance with the UK Subsidy Control Regime
On 1 January 2021, the UK left the EU and is no longer subject to EU laws on State aid. We draw your attention to the guidance issued by
BEIS: Complying with the UK’s international obligations on subsidy control: guidance for public authorities. Please be aware this is a living
document and may be updated by BEIS as time progresses.
The set rules (typically GBER) which we previously relied on for the limits of what we could award, have now been replaced by internal
decisions based on the new BEIS Subsidy Control Regime, and on policy, which will in turn set out bespoke eligibility requirements for each
funding opportunity.
Innovate UK is offering funding for this competition in line with the UK's obligations and commitments to Subsidy Control. To ensure that
Innovate UK remains compliant with the UK’s international Subsidy Control duties in respect of:
• The EU-UK Trade and Cooperation Agreement;
• Article 10 of the Northern Ireland Protocol: (successful applicants which are affected by the Northern Ireland Protocol will
be funded in line with EU State aid regulations)
• Article 138 of the Withdrawal Agreement (some Union law applicable after 31 December 2020 in relation to the UK’s
participation in Union programmes and activities)
• The Subsidies and Countervailing measures within the WTO (ASCM);
• Any other Free Trade Agreements active at the time of award.
All awards will be conditional on compliance at all times with the UK Subsidy Control Regime
– this will be reflected in the terms and conditions of any award
Due diligence for UK Subsidy Control Regime
Under the Subsidy Control Regime, we will carry out financial health checks and going concern assurances on your
organisation.
Certify you are eligible
When submitting an application, you must certify that you are eligible for funding. If you are unsure, please take independent
legal advice before applying. Should you be successful, we will complete these financial checks and assurances before
confirming the grant offer.

Further information is available on our website in the general guidance
Eligibility Criteria - EU State Aid Regulations – Northern Ireland Protocol

“Undertaking in Difficulty” (UiD) on the date of 31 December 2019 but became a UID between 1 January 2020 and 30 June
2021. We will ask for evidence of this.
This test applies to:
• companies that are more than 3 years old
• companies where more than half of its subscribed share capital has disappeared as a result of accumulated losses.

Certify you are eligible

Recommendation of 6 May 2003.

Academic partners
Why Je-S?
• We use the Research Councils’ Joint Electronic Submission System (Je-S) to collect academic
finances
• The Je-S system automates the collection of Full Economic Costs (FEC) based costs from academic
applicants or partners and tells them exactly what numbers should be used in the application form for
their costs
• Also to collect project finance details from non-HEIs (e.g. RTOs) that are claiming they are carrying
out academic quality work and want to be funded on an FEC basis
• Using Je-S means that Innovate UK follows standard Research Council guidelines on funding
universities and enables Research Councils to easily co-fund Innovate UK projects
• The Je-S system is completely separate from Innovate UK and we cannot advise on its usage
• Enter the TSB reference number here
• Enter the TSB Contribution column figures
from your Je-S output document into the
project costs section of the application
• Upload the Je-S with council status form
as a PDF at the bottom of the screen

  • 60. Why Je-S? • We use the Research Councils’ Joint Electronic Submission System (Je-S) to collect academic finances • The Je-S system automates the collection of Full Economic Costs (FEC) based costs from academic applicants or partners and tells them exactly what numbers should be used in the application form for their costs • Also to collect project finance details from non-HEIs (e.g. RTOs) that are claiming they are carrying out academic quality work and want to be funded on an FEC basis • Using Je-S means that Innovate UK follows standard Research Council guidelines on funding universities and enables Research Councils to easily co-fund Innovate UK projects • The Je-S system is completely separate from Innovate UK and we cannot advise on its usage
  • 61. • Enter the TSB reference number here • Enter the TSB Contribution column figures from your Je-S output document into the project costs section of the application • Upload the Je-S with council status form as a PDF at the bottom of the screen Queries about Je-S: Contact Je-S Helpdesk (not Innovate UK) • jeshelp@je-s.ukri.org • 01793 444164 Project costs – academic applicants or partners
