Innovate UK has launched Round 3 of the Emerging and Enabling Competition to invest up to £25 million in innovation projects that inspire new products and services. The competition aims to help UK businesses broaden their innovation activities, disrupt existing markets and find new revenue sources.

Space applications is one of the key focus areas for funding.  Innovate UK is looking for innovations in commercially exploitable applications of satellite data or signals and funding is available for projects between £35,000 and £2 million.

Proposals are invited from all market sectors.  The application process is open now and Round 3 closes on 8 November 2017.


To explore the opportunity for Space applications, the Catapult in partnership with Innovate UK is hosting a series of themed webinars looking at the scope of the competition, the application process and potential application areas.

Space applications must involve, or relate to, the use of one or more of the following technologies:

  • Satellite communications. These must be new services or applications that use satellite communications infrastructure or innovations related to the ground segment and user terminals. One area of interest is in innovations that will strengthen satellite industry links with other telecommunications sectors, including 5G
  • Satellite positioning, navigation and timing. These must be new services or applications that use GNSS (global navigation satellite system). We are also interested in innovations that address the challenges of a disruption to GNSS (technologies that protect systems using GNSS against its loss are regarded as eligible)
  • Earth observation. These must be new services or applications using existing satellite infrastructure or technology that directly links to the provision of new commercial services

Projects that include development of new satellite instruments or hardware are eligible so long as they have a clear path to exploitation as part of a service or application that uses satellite data or signals.

If you are interested in exploring if your idea is eligible and if you have any questions join one of the five webinars to find out more. Please note that the webinars are focused on the following topic areas which will be run by our experts in those areas, but the competition is not limited to these topics!
