The Industrial Strategy Challenge Fund (ISCF) addresses the big societal challenges being faced by UK businesses today. It covers the four themes of the government’s industrial strategy: clean growth, ageing society, future of mobility, and artificial intelligence and data economy.
The fund is backed by £2.6 billion of public money, with £3 billion in matched funding from the private sector.
You can apply for this funding if you’re a business, charity, or based as a research organisation.
