Researchers developing medical technologies can apply for support and funding to gain fresh insights from new environments.
Translate has funding to support 10 secondment opportunities to enable researchers to temporarily take up a role in a complementary organisation, or to host a clinician or industrialist.

Technology innovation managers provide a package of support tailored to the secondees’ individual needs. The support provided could include:
- guidance and advice pre-application
- identifying a placement suited to your needs
- introduction to academics in other institutions
- contact with clinicians
- help to identify an industry specialist
- provide up to £2500 to cover the cost of travel and accommodation
The secondment host
A host organisation can come from across the sector. Examples include hospitals and healthcare providers, companies, innovation teams, international laboratories, and more.
Incoming secondment placements
A secondment-in maybe more suited to your needs: allowing academics and researchers to host clinicians, industrialists or innovation specialists.
A video series has been launched to showcase the benefits of industry, clinical and academic secondments for researchers with an interest in medical technology development.
