The Product and Process Innovation Project

The Product and Process Innovation (PAPI) project, part-funded by the European Regional Development Fund, supports small and medium-sized businesses in York, North Yorkshire and the East Riding, through equipment grants that enable new product development. A grant of 40% is available on a project spend of between £20k and £50k, which equates to a grant of between £8k and £20k.

Applications are made through an initial expression of interest (EOI) form. Full applications are assessed on the level of innovation and impact the grant will have on the business and the local economy. Find our more by visiting
