IPO launches third annual Fast Forward competition

22 October 2012

The Intellectual Property Office (IPO) has launched the third in its its annual Fast Forward competitions, to encourage university-business collaboration.

Fast Forward has so far provided £1.25 million in prizes to 23 winning projects in diverse areas, ranging from the creative industries to medical research and social enterprises. 

The total prize fund available for this year’s competition is £750,000, which will be awarded to around a dozen projects in individual awards of between £10,000 and £100,000. 

One of the highest profile winners to date is the Bloodhound@University project based at the University of the West of England, which is involved in the Bloodhound Super Sonic Car (SSC) world land speed record project.

Bloodhound@University secured £80,000 in funding from last year’s competition to support an open and collaborative approach to intellectual property arising from its Super Sonic Car. 

The closing date for the competition is Friday 14 December 2012.
