The Late-Stage Commercialisation scheme 2024

The Late-Stage Commercialisation scheme opened for Intention to submit (ItS) on 20th February. If you would like to apply for the Full Stage Late-Stage Scheme you must submit an ItS by the closing date 12th March at 17.00.

The main aim of the Late-Stage Commercialisation scheme is to support technology development addressing current challenges facing the PPAN community and the UK. This includes technologies or ideas originating from the core STFC funded areas of particle physics, particle astrophysics, astronomy, nuclear physics, accelerator physics, solar and planetary science, quantum science and computing that underpins these areas.

A secondary aim of the scheme, during the lifetime of the award is to further develop products and technology (move them through the TRL) working with industry where appropriate. Please note, to be eligible for this scheme the science or technology in your project should be within TRL stages 5-7.

To find out more and to help you provide the information we need for the ItS we have created a template you must use. This is provided on the funding finder
