Innovation Growth Lab – Grants for RCT’s

The Innovation Growth Lab is offering research funding for randomised controlled trials (RCT’s) generating evidence on the most effective approaches to increasing innovation, supporting high-growth entrepreneurship and accelerating business growth.

The Innovation Growth Lab is a global collaboration of researchers, governments and foundations that aim to make innovation and entrepreneurship policy more experimental and evidence-based.

The IGL Grants programme aims to increase the use of RCTs in innovation and entrepreneurship research and evaluation by providing research funding and project management support to researchers and programme delivery organisations interested in undertaking RCTs that relate to these topics. This may range from small design grants to support researchers in earlier stages of trial development to grants for full-scale trial implementation.

The programme is open to:

  • Programme delivery organisations and operators who are involved in entrepreneurship training and education programmes, innovation management and commercialisation, or other programmes that aim to support innovation, entrepreneurship and business growth.
  • Researchers and academics interested in designing and conducting randomised controlled trials related to innovation, entrepreneurship and business growth.

The main aim of the grant is to fund randomised controlled trials that provide evidence on the best approaches to increase innovation, accelerate high-growth entrepreneurship and support business growth.
