The Impact Lab provides a wide range of valuable support for businesses in Devon. Each company we work with receives a bespoke package to suit their needs. Our services are free of charge, although our grants do require a match funding contribution from the business.

Specialist technical support to develop new products, services and processes

The heart of what the Impact Lab offers is resource for collaborative projects to help businesses solve a key technical challenge in the development of a new product, service or process. Project work is led by our core team of technical specialists and scientists, who we call the Innovation Support Team.

Academic expertise

To deliver a project, we also call on the support of a wide range of academic specialists from within any of the seven Impact Lab partners. These academics can provide specific skills and subject-matter expertise where needed - the breadth and depth of expertise they bring is proving to be highly valued.
