Could a funding boost help you reach the next stage in your development pathway?
The NIHR Invention for Innovation (i4i) Programme is delighted to launch its third round of i4i Connect awards – aimed at small and medium-sized med-tech enterprises (SMEs) in need of a funding boost to reach their next stage in the development pathway and accelerate the development of promising medical technologies.
Offering up to £150,000 over a maximum of 12 month period, i4i Connect helps SMEs get to the point where they can apply for further funding, in particular for a full i4i Product Development Award (PDA), or to support projects at any stage of the translational research and development pathway to further de-risk them for follow on investment.
i4i Connect 3 will launch on 14 August 2019, to find out more, visit https://www.nihr.ac.uk/explore-nihr/funding-programmes/invention-for-innovation.htm
Please note that open competitions offering funding opportunities to SMEs are also available from SBRI Healthcare, UKRI and Wellcome Trust. Please consult their websites for details and/or to register for future updates.
