Academics and researchers working in close collaboration with medical technology industry partners can apply for up to £100,000 FEC* from the Medical Technologies IKC to undertake proof of concept projects in Regenerative Medical Devices & Medical Devices with Enhanced Regenerative Functions.
Regenerative devices is a growing area that focuses on functionally repairing and regenerating the patient’s own tissue. The global market for regenerative devices (acellular scaffolds, bioactive biomaterials and implants) is estimated to grow at 20% per year to £50bn by 2020, creating a significant opportunity for the industry in the UK. The Medical Technologies IKC focus on the regenerative devices sector which provides the potential to commercialise technologies more quickly and cost effectively.
Academics and researchers can apply for proof-of-concept funding of up to £100K FEC to advance these technologies to better position them for further investment and development by industry. Projects must show clear commercial objectives and provide evidence of specific industry involvement.
