£10 million funding for innovative projects that tackle healthcare challenges
UK businesses are invited to apply to the Biomedical Catalyst for a share of up to £10 million to develop innovative products and processes to healthcare challenges across two competitions for:
- feasibility studies to explore and evaluate the commercial potential of early-stage ideas – up to £2 million available
- early-stage projects to create sufficient data to support later testing of products in a clinical or other relevant setting – up to £8 million available.
A growing and ageing population is creating a need for better, more efficient health services.
The fund is a partnership between Innovate UK and the Medical Research Council. It aims to support innovative ideas across the life science sector to make ideas from research and academia a reality.
Funding is available in any sector or discipline, including:
- stratified healthcare
- advanced therapies, such as gene and cell therapies
- medical technologies and devices.
Projects should develop innovative healthcare products, technologies and processes. This could include projects that aim to:
- prevent disease or manage chronic health conditions
- detect or diagnose disease earlier
- provide tailored treatments that change the underlying disease or offer cures.
The deadline for applications is 6th June 2018.
