Start 2024 off in the right direction and join us for a session to find out about the upcoming support to help your manufacturing business grow.

At this session, we will hear from three different support programs Horizons, LYVA Labs and Hartree Centre | Science and Technology Facilities Council.


Horizons is a pioneering programme designed to bring cutting-edge and industry-leading innovations to Liverpool City Region’s six boroughs. Funded by the UK Shared Prosperity Fund (UKSPF), the programme aims to support over 100 SMEs by offering access to world-class facilities, unique expertise, and funding opportunities to boost their innovation efforts.

Horizons seeks to empower businesses in all sectors and with various goals to succeed. The City Region’s Plan for Prosperity envisions a cleaner, stronger, and fairer community where no one is left behind, and innovation is the key to achieving this. By creating better opportunities for businesses and communities across the region, Horizons aims to make a significant difference by supporting long-term success.


LYVA Labs was founded to drive economic growth through innovation across Liverpool City Region. We work with businesses of any stage and scale who want to put innovative ideas at the heart of their future growth.

Their fully-funded Innovation Consultancy service helps you navigate and succeed in your innovation and R&D journey. Their team helps businesses explore new R&D opportunities, find expert partners, and attract funding to develop successful new products, services, and business models.

Alongside the consultancy service, we also have discretionary £15K R&D vouchers to support projects of high potential to the region. Kick-starting new collaborative R&D partnerships and supporting the journey towards commercialisation.”
