  • Assessment of market and regulatory requirements
  • Development of detailed project plans that consider all of the factors that could impair successful development of the technology
  • Identification of risks and barriers
  • Targeted funding applications to progress innovation
  • Opportunities for clinical engagement to identify real need for new technologies

Knowledge Transfer Partnerships

Companies can also access qualified graduates (at any stage of their career) from the region through Knowledge Transfer Partnerships (KTPs), bringing new skills and knowledge to your business.

The KTP scheme helps businesses to innovate and grow by linking them with a university and a graduate to work on a specific project.

Translate has funding available to offer Technology Co-Development Packages, providing financial and in-kind support worth up to £14,000 per package.  Up to six packages will be offered in total.

Applications are encouraged from:

  • Clinicians or healthcare professionals with an unmet clinical need, who are seeking academic and industrial partners to assist in co-developing solutions
  • Industry with a specific market opportunity or clinical need, seeking collaborative R&D with academics and clinicians (we can provide assistance with ensuring NDAs are in place to ensure effective discussions)
  • Academics wishing to explore applications of their technology, who are seeking clinical and industrial partners to assist with identifying potential opportunities and routes to market

The Technology Co-Development Packages focus on delivering workshops that address specific unmet needs or opportunities.  Ideas and solutions will be developed in the workshops, which will then be followed up and supported afterwards.
