“I’ve got an idea” Fund for novel technical ideas

Grants available for schools and groups of school children with an idea that’s technically inventive and novel and, if it worked, would deliver either an environmental or social benefit in the UK.

The fund has been set up in memory of Peter Williams by his family. Peter spent his life generating a diversity of technical ideas and experimenting to see if they might work. The process always involved others and was always part of the fun. Some of his ideas worked and some of them didn’t but they all left the world a better and more interesting place.

The fund is being run in that spirit of imagination, potential impact and fun. The fund is looking for ideas that:

  • are based on a technical idea or innovation
  • could deliver a social or environmental benefit
  • are intriguing, inventive and have an element of fun

This is a doing fund; it only funds the costs of making and/or testing the idea itself. Applicants will be informed within 4 weeks of submission if their application has been successful.
