Opportunities to Match with UK Companies thru Innovate UK

The National Offshore Wind Research and Development Consortium (NOWRDC) has partnered with Innovate UK to leverage funding awards and enhance the U.S. supply chain.

  • Innovate UK will invest up to £1.5 million in U.K. companies partnering with U.S. consortia to work on projects as part of the $41 million U.S. NOWRDC program.
  • The scope for the U.K. competition mirrors that of the U.S. NOWRDC program and seeks to develop U.K.-U.S. collaborative R&D.
  • The aim of this competition is to fund U.K. organizations to work collaboratively with NOWRDC to reduce the technical barriers faced by offshore wind developers, original equipment manufacturers, and the supply chain. The focus is on reducing barriers that stop the use of offshore wind technologies, including cost.

Information about projects that have completed the Innovate UK Expression of Interest (EoI) stage can be found in the following document:
