Small Grant Scheme

Small Grant Scheme


UPC received a grant through the New Anglia Small Grant Scheme to support the development of our bespoke premises, which we moved into in March 2018. Our new building is significantly larger than our previous premises, giving the company room to grow, and includes a temperature-controlled laboratory which has increased our product testing capability.

The Small Grant Scheme, funded by the European Regional Development Fund and awarded by the New Anglia LEP, provides grants between £1,000 and £25,000 to help businesses grow and develop.

The ERDF focuses its investments on certain key areas:

  • Innovation and research
  • The digital agenda
  • Supporting small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs)
  • The low-carbon economy

The grant scheme can help your business if you are looking to expand, have plans to improve productivity or efficiency, or if you are launching a new product or service.
