About the funding
All three calls have been developed with the aim of accelerating and enhancing innovation in all sectors of medical technologies and medical devices with significant commercial potential and patient benefit.
“Through our funding competition and regional networks, we support the development of medical technologies that are better aligned to patient needs” says Danielle Miles, a Technology Innovation Manager for Grow MedTech.
“Involving people living with conditions throughout the innovation process not only maximises end-user benefit, but it validates the commercial potential of new technologies in a way that attracts future investors”.
