The UK's Technology Strategy Board (TSB) and the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC) launched a £2.5 million ($4.1 million) funding competition to accelerate commercial graphene applications.

This competition will invest in projects that "explore the realistic potential of graphene to yield new products that could disrupt markets", and will look at projects from small, medium and large companies.

The TSB says they will finance up to 65% of those projects for large companies, 75% for small and medium companies and 100% for research organizations (which can be partners in projects). Projects are expected to last up to 12 months and to range in size up to total costs of £200,000 ($328,000).

You can submit your application on April 7th, and the deadline is June 4th.
