TUV SUD Measurement for Recovery Programme

Released: Tuesday 1st September 2020

TÜV SÜD National Engineering Laboratory (NEL), in collaboration with its partner UK measurement laboratories, is helping companies recover from COVID-19. The Measurement for Recovery (M4R) Programme, which is now open for applications, provides companies support to overcome measurement issues relating to their processes and/or products, etc. The scheme is aimed at non-off-the-shelf services and could cover up to a maximum of 20 days fully funded support from NEL. The £3m programme being led by NPL (National Physical Laboratory) will run until the end of March 2021. The process for applying is straightforward, requiring only the submission of two brief paragraphs explaining the problem, its impact and how the project will help the business recover from Covid-19. The project/product does not have to have any direct relationship to Covid-19, all that needs to be shown in the application is that due to the impact the pandemic has had on their business, the organisation has been unable to take it forward without the support of this Programme. The turnaround for decisions is only 3 working days. The scheme is intended to provide short, sharp interventions as opposed to funding longer-term R&D based projects. Therefore, the maximum project duration is expected to be around 2 months. Multiple applications are permitted providing these address different issues.
