unstar this property answer text <p><strong> </strong></p><p> </p><p>We are looking to provide a range of innovation finance products to meet the needs of businesses, which will include loans, grants, and other types of innovation finance. Some of our competitor economies (like France, Finland, and the Netherlands) use a variety of financial instruments to support innovative businesses. We have engaged with their innovation agencies to learn from these established approaches to support, drive and encourage innovation in the UK. We are conducting market research to engage with, and fully understand the needs of, innovative businesses of all sizes and across many UK industry sectors with a high level of innovation, including life sciences. As part of the first phase of implementation the Government will announce the details of a pilot and accompanying evaluation in late 2016. The pilot will test specific financial products ahead of progressing to full roll-out.</p> more like this

The Treasury will underwrite the payment of such awards, even when specific projects continue beyond the UK’s departure from the EU.
