New Anglia Local Enterprise Partnership currently has two tenders available, please see below for more information: 

  • Invitation to quote: Road to Net Zero Business Support Programme – Net Zero Challenge Fund 
  • Help us to design Skills Bootcamps to support your workforce and recruitment

The Road to Net Zero Business Support Programme is a pilot initiative designed to pro-actively pivot business support and grants on a net zero future, building business advice expertise, and developing a portfolio of tested interventions which can be rolled out further in future.

The Net Zero Challenge Fund will enable the programme to support a small number of flagship projects at 100%.  The Fund is offered on an Open Call basis and will be assessed collaboratively by key partners.  The Challenge Fund is designed to bring innovative/creative ideas and the testing of technologies in the private sector to help solve public sector net zero challenges.

Funded projects will be revenue based, however, they may also include some minor equipment purchases, to meet the fund and timescale requirements; projects may also include an element of feasibility or industrial research testing.

We are seeking fully costed proposals for activity and/or technology pilots to be carried out between 1st March and 31st May 2022, with all claims for funding required by the end of May 2022.


A total budget of £150,000 including VAT is available for this work. Lots of £25K+ (at a 100% intervention rate) including VAT will be considered.  We are seeking up to three projects in Norfolk to reflect Government prioritisation, and up to two projects in Suffolk.


Successful proposals will include a convincing timeline for delivery of their activity which should take place between 1st March and 31st May 2022.  All claims for funding required by the end of May 2022.
