New £15 Million Fund to Address Technical or Commercial Challenges in Health and Life Sciences (UK)
Innovate UK has launched a new £15 million fund for projects addressing technical or commercial challenges in health and life sciences (H&LS).
The H&LS sector focuses on agriculture, food and healthcare. It is supported by bioscience technology, medical research and engineering and physical sciences expertise. The aim is to increase competitiveness for UK small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs). Grants can be awarded to projects led by a UK-based business of any size. In certain circumstances a research and technology organisation (RTO) may also be eligible to lead. Innovate UK welcome projects led by SMEs. An SME can apply on its own for funding up to £100,000. All consortia must involve at least one SME.
All applicants must register before midday on the 5th April 2017.
