The meeting was an opportunity to get some first thoughts and ideas as to the new fund; which will make £300,000 available over three years (£100,000 per year). At present there is no criteria set.
The agenda for the initial meeting was as follows:
Scene setting: what do we mean by an ‘innovation fund’; what outcomes are we wanting to achieve? Priorities?
Budget for the fund and minimum/maximum award
Application process e.g.
1 stage v 2 stage
Criteria including no of applications
Full minutes are available here and the group will meet again on 5th November and 5th December, 9.30- 10.30am.
