Academic hub

We’re on a mission to get researchers working together at the crossroads of academic disciplines, where exciting innovations take place. We’ll also shout about the results, promoting your research and the amazing benefits it brings to society and the economy.  Here, you’ll find information on how to get involved with us and the activities we’re supporting to encourage innovation between academics and the public, private and third sectors. We know that innovation projects with partners can be complex, so we want to be clear about how you can submit proposals to us and how they’ll be evaluated. There’s also information on the institutes and research centres that are part of the DDI programme, and our sector experts, who can help you develop strong proposals that have industry backing.
