The University of Kent is proud to be part of the Growing Kent & Medway consortium! Come to us for more information about the latest GKM grants to businesses in the food and drink industry; and for help trialling and enhancing your products in our BioTech Hub.
A range of different grants, offering £10k to 0.5m, are available for businesses and research organisations to apply for. Get in touch with us to find out more about how to develop an application for funding (see the latest grant application details in the GKM Grant Page link to the RHS of this page).
A number of new specialist product research facilities are being developed for GKM. At Kent, we have The BioTech Hub, which provides businesses with opportunities to trial new research to enhance their products and services. If you are a business in the Food and Drink industry, whether you specialise in growing fruits, making wine, adding value to raw goods, packaging, machinery or something else…we would love to hear from you!
The first round of grant funding ended on 20th October 2021, and the next grant round is anticipated in Spring 2022.
