ICHP launches a new service to help innovators gain access grant funding for their projects.
If you are looking for funding, ICHP is launching a new service to help you identify the right grant for your healthcare project, product or innovation.
You are eligible to take up this new service if your project:
- Has had some engagement with an end-user organisation,
- Is at a proof of concept stage (i.e. Technology Readiness Level 3 and above)
- Has potential to be deployed in the market within 2 to 7 years
ICHP is partnering with experts that will help to identify and submit grant applications in the UK and EU. With several application deadlines looming in February 2018, it is time to start thinking about an application.
Contact: Shirlene.Oh@imperialcollegehealthpartners.com by the 15th December with your idea. She will put you in touch with the team that will initially ask you to fill in an eligibility questionnaire. If successful the team will guide you through the maze of grant applications and help to identify which application you could be eligible for.
View some examples of grant applications and criteria that you and your teams could be eligible for.
