The funding we offer

The TALE programme funds projects that use data analytics as part of a logistics function. Grants can contribute up to 40% of your total project spend, with your company funding the other 60%. Your project spend can include elements of capital, revenue, software and consultancy costs. For example:

  • Software applications including tracking systems, warehouse management, stock control, security protection tools and market intelligence software.
  • Consultants to advise on, or help implement a data use solution.
  • Equipment for data collection and processing such as computers, iPads, telephony and data capture devices such as sensors.

We currently offer two types of grants – TALE Lite and TALE Grants. All Grants are funded by the ERDF (European Regional Development Fund) and this EU budget is guaranteed regardless of Brexit as it has been drawn down by the UK Government.

TALE Lite £1,000-£2,000

TALE Lite grants are available to help you purchase software and initial consultancy advice related to data, and are worth £1,000 to £2,000.
