SFC Innovation Voucher - Student Placement Scheme

The scheme is aimed at building on existing relationships between SMEs and HEIs in Scotland to develop previous SFC Innovation Voucher projects.


A PhD/Masters student will be placed within the company to continue this development and work on a clearly defined project/timeframe with the intention that the outputs of the project can be adopted by the business and offer valuable business skills/experience to the student.



  • Only SMEs that have had a successful SFC standard innovation voucher award are eligible to apply.
  • The voucher should be used to continue the development programme from the original Innovation Voucher project.
  • The company should identify a clearly defined issue or opportunity that will benefit from PhD/Masters student interaction within their business to set timescales.
