The Product and Process Innovation (PAPI) project, part-funded by the European Regional Development Fund, supports small and medium-sized businesses in York, North Yorkshire and East Riding, through equipment grants that enable new product development. 

A grant of 40% is available on a project spend of between £20k and £50K, which equates to a grant of between £8k and £20k.
  • Applications are made through an initial expression of interest (EOI) form. This only takes a few minutes to complete:
  • If your EOI passes the eligibility assessment, you will be asked to complete a full application and our team of experienced Innovation Advisers will support you through the process.
  • Full applications are assessed on the level of innovation and impact the grant will have on the business and the local economy.
