ECME Mini Project Grant Awards – COVID-19 RESPONSE

16 April 2020

The ECME research centre, managed by Ulster University, is welcoming proposals from eligible enterprises for grant awards of up to £30,000 to support both the strategic objectives of the centre and the national and international response to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. 

COVID-19 is having a significant impact on the research and innovation community, both in Northern Ireland, the Republic of Ireland, Scotland and internationally. ECME will invite proposals that align with the challenge areas identified by the World Health Organisation.

The ECME centre will make grant awards to several industry collaborators to assist with the commercialisation of co-developed products and services which support the national and international response to the COVID-19 pandemic.  This will be done through a competitive process to maximise the impact of the grant awards on sustainable economic and COVID-19 activity.

Full details on the call including an Application Form and Guidance Notes can be found at

I would encourage you to study the details of the Draft Call and respond as swiftly as possible if you believe your company has a contribution to make during this unprecedented time. 

The closing date for applications under the First Call is Friday 24th April.
