IGNITE your…. USSP Grant Users Group
Presenter - Nick Allot, Principal at Nquiring Minds will be presenting the idea of
"Creating an Grant Users Group on the University of Southampton Science Park"
With an increasing number of companies on the science park bidding for and winning grants from UK and EU sources there is a large amount of experience and knowledge being gained. The aim of the Grant Users Group is to pool that knowledge and creat strategic partnerships that can be even more successful in the future.
Nquiring minds, a research lab specialising in high technology research, have recently received two grants from the technology strategy board amounting to a total of £230,000 and are part of a EU funded FP7 ICT programme with a budget of 14 million Euro.
