SBRI: the Small Business Research Initiative

14th December 2022

SBRI brings together government challenges and ideas from business to create innovative solutions.

This page on the SBRI programme – delivered by Innovate UK – provides information about how it works and gives examples of public sector bodies and businesses that have taken part.

It is aimed at:

  • businesses that might want to apply to an SBRI competition to find out how it works and what they can get out of it
  • public sector organisations that might benefit from running an SBRI competition and how to get help to do so

Here you can find opportunities in the UK, as well as examples of some of the businesses and organisations that benefit from SBRI.

This includes information on government’s GovTech Catalyst. The £20 million fund was announced in the Industrial Strategy, which will use SBRI to support businesses to provide innovative technology solutions to the public sector, and the Government Technology Innovation Strategy, which sets the foundations needed for government to innovate through emerging technologies.
