Supporting SMEs



The Royce SME Equipment Access Scheme is open to UK-based SMEs, spin-outs and start-ups and offers subsidised access to its extensive portfolio of equipment. The scheme is available to businesses under the Small Amounts of Financial Assistance Allowance, part of UK Subsidy Control, and businesses must be eligible to receive this in order to apply.

The National Royce SME Access Scheme is currently open and applicants should complete an online form which will be reviewed centrally by the Royce Hub before being allocated to a Royce Partner to progress the work.


Applications must be made via the central Henry Royce Institute system. Use the button below to go to the application information on the HRI website.
