  4. 4. Introduction to Innovate UK and UKRI
  5. 5. 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
  6. 6. 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
  7. 7. 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
  8. 8. ©2021 UKRI Aims of today’s briefing 8 To bring the scope and guidance to life, so that you fully understand the competition and the relevant rules and processes for applying for and undertaking a project To give you the opportunity to ask us questions, and get appropriate guidance To highlight where you can find help at KTN, including networking opportunities and application advice

  11. 11. 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
  12. 12. 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
  13. 13. 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.”
  14. 14.

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

  59. 59. Academic partners
  60. 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. 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
