Update | June 2021: UKRI Research England funding ended in June 2021. Whilst we no longer provide opportunities to progress technologies through Grow MedTech, we are still committed to delivering learning and developing opportunities through Translate until the end of the year.

We have nurtured a vibrant network of academics, companies, clinicians and patients. Our grants scheme provides funding for key points in the technology development process, to help academics take their ideas forward. We have supported companies looking to progress their technologies, by providing expertise, creating partnerships and access to funding. And we aimed to ensure the technologies developed were better aligned to patient needs, by involving them at every stage of the journey.

Through our partner programme, Translate, we still provide opportunities for our network to learn from each other, through training workshops and secondments.
