(3Ders.org) As part of Innovate UK, the United Kingdom government is launching a funding competition to inspire and promote development in 3D printing and connected digital manufacturing. Eligible projects must be led by UK based companies, and must be developed within the UK. The competition is offering up to £4.5 million (approximately $6.5 million) in funding to businesses with both novel and applicable 3D printing business proposals.
The 3D printing funding competition is open to all UK businesses, and as it is geared towards collaborative research projects, each business submitting a proposal must be partnered with at least one other business. Research organizations are also welcomed as collaborators.  The competition has also listed a number of areas for which it won’t provide funding, including bio-printing, atomic layer deposition, rapid prototyping and tooling machines
