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, watch our the two videos below
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.
