The i-Con Challenge Fund & Matchmaking Platform

Due to a high number of applications the first round of Stage 1 applications will be suspended on Friday 26 June

What is it?  

An initiative designed to quickly match industry challenges with potential solution providers and funding for impact focused innovation projects.

We aim to boost this fund through our varied network of partners who are committed to invest in the recovery of the sector.




Who is it for?  

Challenge holders: anyone working in the built environment (policy makers, public & private sector clients, contractors, manufacturers, federations, trade & professional bodies, specialist sub-contractors, professional consultants, etc) with a COVID19-related problem that needs a solution.

Solution providers: product, service and technology providers from the built environment or other sectors, Universities, colleges and R&D bodies.



How does it work?  

Apply to the challenge fund to co-create solutions by using our online collaboration platform to register a challenge or solution, build collaboration teams and apply for funding.
