Mini Projects




The ECME research centre, managed by Ulster University, welcomed proposals from eligible enterprises for grant awards of up to £30,000 to support the strategic objectives of the centre. The competition is now closed.


COVID-19 is having a significant impact on the research and innovation community in Northern Ireland, the Republic of Ireland, Scotland and internationally. ECME will invite proposals that align with the challenge areas identified by the World Health Organisation including the provision of PPE equipment and the supply of rapid diagnostic kits..


The ECME centre will make grant awards to several industry collaborators to assist with the commercialisation of co-developed products and services which align to national and international response to the COVID-19 pandemic.  This will be done through a competitive process to maximise the impact of the grant awards on sustainable economic activity.


Enterprises and organisations who wish to submit proposals as part of this call must be located within the EU’s INTERREG VA area or be able to measure economic impact from the funded project within the eligible area.
