Innos Invites Project Applications To Take Advantage Of Pump-Priming Funds

The UK's Leading Nanoscale Innovator Issues Call To Academics

Innos, the UK's leading research and development company for innovations in nanoscale technology, has today invited academics to submit new ideas in order to access pump-priming funding. Innos is able to provide academic researchers with a fabrication and consultancy service assisting in the formulation of a ‘proof of concept', to strengthen a full proposal to the EPSRC for a subsequent grant for the project.

Successful applicants will be able to take advantage of Innos' expertise in the UK as well as full processing capabilities at its state of the art 2650m², class 100-10,000, Philips Microsystems Plaza (MiPlaza) R&D industrial research facility, at the High-Tech Campus in Eindhoven, the Netherlands.

Sales, Marketing and Technology Director at Innos, Dr Alec Reader explains, “Pump-priming is an extremely effective way of fine-tuning a concept or idea and ensuring its best potential is fulfilled before heading into a full project. There is an abundance of strong ideas from the academic world that aren't given a clear route to market due to its culture of moving on to the next piece of research. We provide the tools and expertise needed to realise ideas and make that route available.”

Innos has successfully worked with academic institutions across the UK and Europe to provide a full fabrication service under pump-priming funding which have gone on to be awarded EPSRC grants. Recent projects include the manufacture of low cost high performance MOSFETs with the Universities of Southampton and Liverpool and novel strained-Si transistors with Imperial College London.

Deadline for applications is December 2007. To discuss with Innos please contact tel: +44 (0)870 8746667 or Email: sales@innos.co.uk .
