14 SBRI competitions There are normally two competition rounds per year (Spring and Autumn). Competitions are based around a market need and typically split into two phases. Phase 1 proposals concentrate on proving the scientific, technical and commercial feasibility of the proposed project (up to 100,000 and last for six months) Prototyping is undertaken in phase 2. Projects that successfully complete phase 2 can then be commercialised and offered to government departments and others under a normal procurement process (up to 1 million over a period of 12 months)

20 Key message Focus on the business plan The evaluation panels are external experts in investment and venture capital. As a result the evaluation process, is very much simulating an investor decision. Money coming through the instrument can be seen as an investment, the Commission does not expect a direct return. The return on investment [is] more jobs, growth, turnover, more tax. Given this, proposals should be structured as a business plan that is investor-ready.
