Innovate UK

28th April 2020 / Posted by Susannah Wilks

CRP has submitted a £50,000 bid to Innovate UK to support its public, private and community partners to get Back to Business safely as the Covid-19 crisis evolves.

CRP is already delivering a larger Innovate UK-funded project, Electric Vehicle Fleet-Centred Local Energy Systems (EFLES), with partners including UPS, Moixa and UK Power Networks.

CRP would like to thank its Board Co-Chair Business Improvement District Camden Town Centre Limited for playing the lead partner role on its latest collaborative Back to Business Innovate UK bid.

The Back to Business bid has been designed to support businesses of all sectors and sizes to adapt to operating differently in this initial Covid-19 lockdown, and through future anticipated lockdowns. The aim is that further government help may be released as a result.

Measures to be encouraged will include businesses delivering products and services direct to communities’ doorsteps, as well as rapidly adjusting the nature of those products and services, including who they are targeted at (e.g. business to community services to replace some business to business services).
