IUK Smart Grant - Heat Flux Sensors
We led a winning consortia bid for a £340,000 2023 SMART grant from Innovate UK in partnership with Printed Electronics Ltd. and Tyrrell Building Technologies. This funding will be used to develop a first-of-its-kind thermal health monitoring technology. Leveraging novel printed thermoelectric sensors for continuous, seamless and accessible building fabric u-value measurement.
IUK Investor Partnership Programm
In 2022, we secured a £200,000 project alongside GC Angels and Hornsearle Property Group to lower the carbon footprint in housing by redefining material design. Using recycled materials with advanced additives like graphene, we built a prototype house at Energy House 2.0, where we solidified our approach to building with our system and materials.
ESPRC - Impact Acceleration Account
In 2022 we have been awarded a £30,000 grant from the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council executed by the University of Manchester to fund equipment for our R&D efforts.
Innovate UK REforMM
In 2023 we have been able to secure over £300,000 from an Innovate UK REforMM (Resource efficiency for materials and manufacturing) grant with our partner Wool Insulation Wales. This funding will be used to develop high-density rigid EWI panels from sheep wool with excellent insulation properties.
In a variety of grants and funded projects, we've been able to secure over £90,000 from the European Regional Development Fund to support the development of materials, processes and several technological novelties.
IUK Smart Grant - Material Design
Vector Homes won an Innovate UK Smart Grant worth £270,000 in 2021 to fund an innovation project aimed at reducing the embodied carbon of residential construction through a new approach to materials design. We are working in partnership with significant supply chain partners including Primex Plastics.
