Funding to enable commercially inspired projects to be validated and de-risked: establishing a market need and enabling further investment to be attracted. Outcomes from this work will be validated and de-risked technology opportunities, with an established market need, subsequently attracting feasibility funding via the programme or externally. Projects should aim to bring together researchers, clinicians, patients/public and industry.

Value

Proof of Market awards costed up to £5,000 with a project duration of up to 6 months are available through this call, which fit with the award scope.
