Biomedical Catalyst 2016

This call is open to UK-based SMEs that wish to carry out their project in the UK. Funding available £8 million has been allocated to fund projects in this competition. Winners could get up to: 70% of their eligible project costs for small or micro businesses 60% for medium-sized businesses.

Eligibility criteria

This call is open to UK-based SMEs that wish to carry out their project in the UK.

Funding available

£8 million has been allocated to fund projects in this competition. Winners could get up to:

  • 70% of their eligible project costs for small or micro business
  • 60% for medium-sized business

About the call

Across the world, we are facing increasing healthcare challenges, both physical and financial. There is a need to provide for a growing, ageing population with an increasing burden of disease. Healthcare costs are rising. The long-term sustainability of current models of provision is in doubt. The need to provide efficient and effective healthcare has never been more important. To meet these challenges, companies and academics must work together.

The aim of this competition is to test a well-developed concept and show its effectiveness in a relevant environment. It will do this through:

  • experimental evaluation (lab-scale)
  • initial demonstration using in vitro and in vivo models (not human clinical trials)
  • exploring potential production mechanisms
  • product development planning
  • intellectual property protection

These ideas should be for innovative healthcare technologies that will help provide:

  • disease prevention and proactive management of health and chronic conditions
  • earlier and better detection and diagnosis of disease leading to better patient outcomes
  • tailored treatments that either change the underlying disease or offer potential cures

The catalyst will support projects from any sector or discipline. Solutions may include (but are not limited to):

  • stratified healthcare (both therapy and diagnostic components)
  • regenerative medicine
  • diagnostics
  • eHealth and mHealth solutions
  • enabling medical technologies and devices

How to apply

  • Attend the webinar for potential applicants on 12 July
  • Register by: 7th September 2016
  • Application deadline: 14th September 2016
