The Retail Institute

Funding & Grants

The Retail Institute have access to a wide range of funding streams for companies of all sizes, based in the UK and Europe.

The Retail Institute can identify opportunities to secure a range of funding streams for businesses of all shapes and sizes.

Working on behalf of our clients to identify those that are relevant and practicable for the retail and packaging sectors, we can secure a range of funding opportunities for employers of all sizes. The team works with industry, as well as research organisations and policymakers.

 A particular funding scheme of interest to many companies is Knowledge Transfer Partnerships (KTPs); a UK-wide programme helping businesses to improve their competitiveness and productivity through the better use of knowledge, technology and skills that reside within the UK Knowledge Base.

A KTP serves to meet a core strategic need and identifies innovative solutions to help businesses grow. KTPs often deliver significant increased profitability for business partners as a direct result of the partnership through improved quality and operations, increased sales and access to new markets.
