A competition aiming to encourage universities and public sector research organisations to collaborate with business and local communities on innovative research projects has been launched by the Intellectual Property Office (IPO).

The Fast Forward competition has a total prize fund of £750,000, which will be divided among 12 winning projects, with awards ranging from £10,000 to £100,000.
