Stakeholder Relations Team

The EIC brings innovators and industry together.

We partner with the EIC to find and progress transformative ideas from SMEs and innovators. The EIC’s specialist team will guide you through the application process, share many helpful innovator resources, and if necessary advise on the best funding options for your ideas.

You can visit the EIC’s dedicated innovator support page.

Support is free of charge and includes access to resources such as:

  • the ultimate guide to innovating with the energy networks
  • an interactive funding finder
  • a single industry calendar

Solutions can also be proposed in response to ‘Calls for Innovation’, or ideas with the potential to benefit our industry partners can be submitted any time. See the latest opportunities/Calls for Innovation here.

We are also working with the EIC to remove barriers to innovation and have signed up to an Industry and Innovator Operating Charter. Get involved, share your experience of working with us or voice a concern here.
