De-risking and converging medical technologies call
Businesses, researchers and clinicians working in fields linked to medical technologies are invited to apply for proof-of-market, proof-of-feasibility and proof-of-concept funding.
Grow MedTech is a new program that supports medical technology innovation in the Leeds and Sheffield City Regions and looks to fund projects that advance the development and de-risking of technologies in order to make them more attractive for further investment.
These 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.
Tangible links with industry and the clinical or healthcare sector are encouraged: “Our funding competition gives companies an opportunity to collaborate with academia and access world-class expertise,” says Danielle Miles, a Technology Innovation Manager for Grow MedTech.
“It also allows academics to translate their research into significant clinical impact by leveraging industry connections. We’re urging companies to get in touch if they’re interested in the potential of medtech.”
