SME support

Our SME Team

Over the past 10 years, we've worked with thousands of SMEs to help them address technology challenges, exploit new market opportunities and gain a competitive advantage.

We deliver funded projects on behalf of Innovate UK and other funding bodies to:
Support SMEs – Accelerate Innovation – Advance UK Manufacturing

How can we help?

Our support fits into three key categories:

  • raising awareness of new tools, techniques, and industry best practice through demonstrations, workshops, and collaboration networks
  • collaborative, fixed-term, challenge-specific projects
  • collaborative R&D within a consortium

SME Team track record


Some of our major projects

We are currently delivering a Catapult Reach Programme, funded by Innovate UK. This programme aims to support UK-based manufacturing SMEs in developing new innovative products and processes.

Our Product Innovation Accelerator project, part funded by the European Regional Development Fund, provides assistance to manufacturing SMEs within Coventry & Warwickshire and the Black Country. It was developed to help these businesses create and test new products, improve their manufacturing processes and access innovation at WMG.

We’re also involved in a Coventry and Warwick LEP project, based on a three-year, £1.15 million investment in equipment through our Advanced Materials and Manufacturing Centre (AMMC). This project allows SMEs within the Coventry & Warwick LEP area to benefit from specialist University support to help them accelerate new product development within their business.
