Expression of Interest for Round Two of the Innovation
Bank (2012/13): Guidance

Who Can Apply?
There are a limited number of places for participation in the Innovation Bank this
year. We will be selecting around 40-50 applicants interested in developing and
implementing innovative solutions to local challenges to take part. You will need to
be able to work in collaboration and make use of the support provided by the
Innovation Unit in tackling social problems and designing solutions.

To apply you must be 18 years old or older on 1 August 2012 and must live, work or
study in the London Borough of Barnet.

You are applying in your own right either as a private individual or as a nominated
individual from a not-for-profit organisation. If an individual, you may be informally
backed by a not for profit organisation, but that is not an advantage or a requirement.
However, please note that if you later bring forward a proposal on behalf of that
organisation, it must:

          not be a public sector body such as a school, health clinic or GP surgery
           (and if you work for any of the above you will not be able to apply to develop
           proposals that involve your employer or your employer’s services, roles or
          be independent of any statutory authority or body;
          not be a religious institution as such, although an independent group which
           a religious institution helps set up may apply; or
          be non-party political.

The council will take a view on any actual or potential conflict of interest and the
council’s view on this will be final.

Sending us your ‘Expression of Interest’ form
At this stage, we are simply looking to find out about you as an individual. You
should not send us any specific proposal at this stage. If you are selected, we will
brief you on what is needed in the first workshop.

Please send your Expression of Interest form to by
27 July 2012. Expressions of Interest received after that date will not be accepted.

Please use the form to tell us the most important points about you and don’t make
the form longer than it is already. Please print or type in black ink.

The information you supply on this form will be stored on our computer systems and
used only by people in the council and our partner organisations.
