Update | June 2021: UKRI Research England funding ended in June 2021. Whilst we no longer provide funding 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.

If you are an academic, industry representative or healthcare professional looking for innovation funding, we recommend using the Yorkshire and Humber Academic Health Science Network website to view the latest opportunities.

Funding was available 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 included validated and de-risked technology opportunities, with an established market need, with the potential to attract feasibility funding via the programme or externally. Projects aimed to bring together researchers, clinicians, patients/public and industry.


Proof of Market awards were costed up to £5,000 with a project duration of up to 6 months.
