The grant opportunity from CNC machining specialist and manufacturing partner, Get It Made, is designed to enable cutting-edge research and development needed to support UK subsea innovation and to underpin continued, sustainable growth.

Get It Made is developing a programme to support new businesses in turning their ideas from design to reality. This will be done by working closely with the chosen business to advance their manufacturing capabilities, improve efficiency and foster a quality manufacturing partnership.

“We are thrilled to be offering our support and manufacturing expertise to subsea startups,” said Luke Smoothy, Managing Director at Get It Made. “We will help identify, understand and remove barriers so their innovation can become a reality and get to market quicker. We have worked with a number of great names in the subsea industry and are excited to be able to offer a £2500 grant in free manufacturing services to the next pioneers in this unique industry.”

The manufacturing grant is available to startup businesses that have launched in the last three years and have fewer than 25 employees.

Applications for the grants close at 12pm GMT on 31 December 31 2020 and can be submitted through Get It Made’s website.
