Fully funded visits for clean energy technology companies to Africa and South East Asia

10 January 2020

Innovate UK’s Energy Catalyst programme aims to support businesses to develop innovative, sustainable energy technologies and business models to accelerate clean energy transition in developing and emerging economies. A key focus is to address the clean energy access challenge in Sub-Saharan Africa and South/South East Asia. Energy Catalyst Round 8 will launch in June 2020.

Fully funded brokerage visits are being organised to:

Ghana, Malawi, Nepal, Nigeria, Rwanda, S. Africa, Senegal, Togo, Uganda, Vietnam, Zambia.

This forms part of the collaboration-building process to enable businesses to develop equitable partnerships between the UK and overseas organisations. 

There are three parts to the visit:

  • Getting ready: Pre-visit briefing to provide background information and prepare entities for the visit.
  • The Visit: Access to NGOs, local businesses, academics and governments who will be able to provide information on local opportunities.
  • Helping you to make the best of the opportunity: Enterprise Europe Network and the Knowledge Transfer Network will help you make the most of the opportunity including preparing your funding application.

As only a few companies can be taken on each of these visits places are allocated on a competitive basis.
