ATI Programme: Change of Funding Rates Batch 38 onwards

We have changed the funding rates for all industrial research projects applying to Batch 38 onwards. Grant funding will be capped at 60% of the total eligible project costs for all applications in the Strategic Programme.

In September 2020 we announced a relaxing of the previous restriction that each project’s total grant funding could not exceed 50% of the total eligible project costs for the ATI Programme. This was always intended to be a temporary measure to provide additional support to companies to mitigate the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic and we committed to a review after one year.

We have introduced the new funding cap to achieve a better balance between incentivising collaboration, maintaining international competitiveness and achieving the best value for money. In making this decision we have considered the long-term certainty offered by the ATI Programme, which has recently been extended to 2030, and the level of demand from industry.
