This document sets out the headline decisions on the approach we will take for the innovation fund for 2022-25. Our decisions have taken into consideration the feedback provided by stakeholders in our recent consultation and wider feedback we have received during the pilot period of the innovation fund. We have published the headline decisions primarily to ensure the water sector has clarity on, and therefore can plan towards, the opening of our next competition, Water Breakthrough Challenge 3, which will launch in October 2022. We expect to publish a consultation decision companion document in autumn 2022, which will set out further information on the headline decisions, including more detail and decisions on the new open access competition, which requires development and consultation with the sector.
