TALE Grants are set at 40% of your total Data Project budget, with your company funding the other 60%. Your project can include elements of capital, revenue, software, consultancy and staff costs.
There are 3 levels of TALE Grant:
Starter Boost £1k - £10k
To purchase software and initial consultancy advice related to data
Step Change Grant £10k - £20k
To support software, consultancy or the purchase of equipment directly linked to embedding new data analytic tools and techniques into the company. Your data project will lead to new product or service being launched.
Transformation Grant £20k - £60k
As well as supporting software, consultancy or the purchase of equipment directly linked to embedding new data analytic tools and techniques into the company, your data project will lead to a new product or service being launched as well as the creation of at least one new post.
TALE's Business Support Facilitators will guide the grant application process and can answer any questions on eligibility including acceptable items of expenditure within your data use project.
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.
