A new company in a new field needing considerable R&D, (such as AWES),
has a dependency on financial support before profit can be realised.
It is often the case for research funding that a charity or not for profit or community interest company will be able to find funding more easily. The UK has tax incentives and community funding schemes to steer this dynamic.
Is anyone interested in establishing an R&D charitable foundation? Can this be used to push the work of existing companies?
