KTN call for precision medicine technologies

Innovate UK’s Knowledge Transfer Network (KTN) is looking to invest £6 million in projects that support the development of precision medicine technologies.

Precision medicines are those that combine clinical knowledge with advanced diagnostic techniques and/or data analysis to enable better targeting of treatments.

This competition entitled “Precision medicine: impacting through innovative technology” aims for applications to either focus on either:

  • Feasibility to help companies assess the research, development and adoption issues their concept will need to address and the likelihood of success.
  • Research and development to help companies develop and trial precision medicine technologies.

Applications can be for feasibility studies or industrial research and experimental development projects.

Feasibility projects can last up to 12 months and have a total project cost of up to £100,000. Applications can be from a single-company SME or collaborative projects led by an SME.

Research and experimental development projects can last up to to 24 months and have total project costs between £1 million to £2 million. Projects must be led by a business or research and technology organisations.

The deadline for applications is 25th October 2017 at 12pm.
