i4i Product Development Awards (PDA)

i4i PDA support innovations at any stage of the translational research and development pathway, including the clinical development of laboratory-validated technologies or interventions.

This funding stream is researcher-led and does not specify topics for research.

Research proposals must include applicants from two organisation types: an NHS Trust, higher education institution or small-to-medium-sized enterprise (SME).

There is no upper funding limit for Product Development Awards, but costs must be fully justified. Projects can be up to three years in duration.

Product Development Awards have two funding opportunities a year. See the dates for our funding competitions.

Applications should be submitted through the online Research Management System (RMS). We supply template application forms for stage 1 and stage 2 to help researchers prepare their proposal ahead of submission.

Potential applicants can seek advice on their proposal from the programme team through the pre-submission engagement form. More information for applicants is available in our Stage 1 and Stage 2 application guidance and our supporting information.
