About our UKSPF project

From 1st July 2023, this project will support businesses to develop bespoke new products, processes, or services. This includes the manufacture of prototypes or small batches of components, product design support, or consultancy on design for manufacture, as well as working with businesses on digitalising their manufacturing processes and systems using the latest technology commercially available.

Covering the entirety of the Nottingham City geography, this project will target start-ups, SME and mature businesses as well as the next generation of creators, designers, inventors, engineers and manufacturers, who as young adults, will help shape this region and country’s future prosperity.

Beneficiaries will benefit from new product innovation development, productivity enhancements through digitalisation and/or lean implementation, or sector support through our established and dedicated manufacturing business networks.
