A proof of concept grant is available to test the commercial and technical feasibility of a project. The concept will have been researched and proven. Whether you require the financial boost to test your product or process in the market or seek development to reach a new audience and expand its reach these grants could help.

Europe finance the Proof Of Concept grants so they can help small to medium sized businesses make an impact on society or on the economy. They anticipate economic or societal benefits from projects put forward and at the same time accept the obstacles that stand in the way of pushing them through to the market.

We are here to help guide you towards the right grant for your company. We want to bring your innovative projects to the fore and help you make a difference to Greater Lincolnshire and beyond with your proven concepts.

  • Do you have market testing to do?
  • Do you require new innovative equipment to revolutionise the way you work?
  • Or, do you need to test the efficacy of a product with a wider audience?
