New and novel healthcare solutions: apply for innovation funding


Innovate UK and the Medical Research Council (MRC) are to invest up to £12 million in new and novel healthcare solutions.

There are 2 competitions for UK micro, small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) in the latest round of the Biomedical Catalyst. These are for feasibility and early stage projects.

They are looking to support the development of innovative healthcare technologies and processes such as:

  • disease prevention and proactive management of health and chronic conditions
  • earlier and better detection and diagnosis of disease, leading to better patient outcomes
  • tailored treatments that either change the underlying disease or offer potential cures

The competitions are open, and the deadline is midday on Wednesday 11 October 2017

For further information or to apply for either the feasibility studies competition or the early-stage competition please visit Innovate UK's website here.
