Directly funded research projects

Support provided by National Manufacturing Institute Scotland

What does this involve?

The National Manufacturing Institute Scotland (NMIS) often works with companies which have some very innovative and creative ideas for solving their problems and developing their businesses, but don’t have the funds to help them achieve their aims.

The good news is that there are many different funding opportunities available at a regional, national, European and even global level. NMIS can help support companies in accessing those funds. The value can range from a few thousand pounds to several million.

Am I eligible?

What does this cost?

There is no charge to initially engage with NMIS and any subsequent projects will be costed and scoped individually.

Who is this for?

Any manufacturing business from any sector of any size.

How long does this take?

Initial enagagement can be as brief as a phone call. Projects timescales vary depending on what's involved.
