Funding events ending in July 2012
Our funding events ending in July 2012 are shown below.
Translation Awards should bridge the funding gap in the commercialisation of new technologies in the biomedical area.
They are designed to be flexible, enabling freedom to innovate and push the boundaries of current knowledge. Our aim is to support exceptional individuals with the brightest minds through larger and bolder awards to accelerate product development. The Fund will consider applications that are either single projects or portfolio programmes.
The fund will have strategic highlight areas, however projects covering any aspect of technology development from a range of disciplines - including physical, computational and life sciences - will be considered. Projects must address an unmet need in healthcare or in applied medical research, offer a potential new solution, and have a realistic expectation that the innovation will be developed further by the market.
The Trust will normally actively participate in the stewardship of the project and lead on intellectual property management and exploitation.
