Small Business Engagement Award – call open now

January 6th, 2021

Following the recent launch of the university’s Knowledge Exchange Strategic Delivery Plan, we’d like to highlight an opportunity for academics to engage in knowledge exchange with small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) via the Small Business Engagement Award.

This award is designed to support University of Nottingham academics to engage with SMEs through the established platform of the University of Nottingham Business Network.

The University of Nottingham Business Network has over 1,500 external contacts and its programme of regular business-facing events (currently being delivered as webinars) offers academics a platform to connect with companies from a range of sectors.

The Small Business Engagement Award provides funding of up to £4,000 to cover direct costs of academic time and project delivery costs associated with delivering these online events, as well as developing bespoke follow-up projects with companies.

For more information on how to apply, please read the guidance document and then submit your Expression of Interest by 5.00pm on Friday 29 January 2021.
