Innovate UK is part of UK Research and Innovation (UKRI), the national funding agency investing in science and research in the UK. Operating across the whole of the UK with a combined budget of more than £6 billion, UKRI brings together the 7 Research Councils, Innovate UK and Research England. In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, Innovate UK offered £10 million to fund projects focussed on sustainable economic recovery from COVID-19. Inovus were lucky enough to receive this funding as part of the Sustainable Innovation Fund. The company is running a project that aims to help re-skill surgeons who have been affected by disruption to normal services from the pandemic.
