The Business of Fashion, Textiles and Technology (BFTT) has announced the second round of funding for their SME R&D Support Programme, with £1.5 million available to invest in SME-led research and development (R&D) projects.

This funding call is looking to support small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) in the development of the next generation of products, services and experiences in the fashion, textiles and technology sectors – with sustainable innovation at their core.

Core themes include:

  • Reimagining materials and production
  • Inspiring sustainable consumers
  • Uncovering hidden data insights
  • Designing new experiences

The programme provides a tailored package of funding, combined with academic expertise and strategic business support, benefitting from the multidisciplinary range of expertise from across the BFTT Partnership.

They also welcome those in the wider STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Mathematics) fields interested in collaborating with the FTT sector, who would like to achieve a step-change in their business trajectory.
