Translational funding is used to ‘bridge the gap’ in development between early stage technology resulting from university research, and its commercialisation. Some funding of this type is available from us, but there are also many other translational funding streams available for academics looking to commercialise their research.
Cambridge Enterprise funding
Cambridge Enterprise has funding available to add value to inventions and new concepts that it manages. Proof of concept funding of up to £25,000 is available. Larger projects may also be supported at higher amounts. For more information on this funding, contact us.
Other sources of early-stage funding
There are many early stage funding grants available for pre-commercial development.
