Collaborative Innovation Fund

Highlands and Islands Enterprise and Scottish Enterprise have invested £650,000 into a new Food and Drink Collaborative Innovation Fund.

The fund is for groups of businesses within Scotland's food and drink supply chain - with a focus on small to medium sized enterprises (SMEs).

Larger companies may be part of the collaboration but should have at least one SME in their project.

The aim of the fund is to encourage a culture of collaborative innovation by addressing key food and drink opportunities or challenges.

The information on this and the following page is also available as a downloadable PDF.

Please be aware that applications for the Collaboration Fund close on 31st March.
