Funding is available to support early stage feasibility and de-risking of technologies: investigating or demonstrating the feasibility of a technology concept, early stage prototype development and testing, and ensuring that the technology is designed to meet the demands of the end user from the outset.  The funding should be used to accelerate technologies towards commercialisation or clinical adoption, and assists in attracting follow on or external funding. Funding is via a one stage process. There is no requirement that projects have previously received Grow MedTech funding but prior Proof of Market funding will show evidence that the project is at the appropriate stage for Proof of Feasibility funding.

Value

Proof of Feasibility awards costed up to £20,000 with a project duration of up to 6 months are available through this call, which fit with the award scope.
