As previously, HSC Innovations reminds members of staff in the HSC trusts to consider applying for the Wellcome Trust Translation Awards. Translation Awards are response-mode funding designed to bridge the funding gap in the commercialisation of new technologies in the biomedical area.
Projects covering any aspect of technology development from a range of disciplines – including physical, computational and life sciences – will be considered. Projects must address an unmet need in healthcare or in applied medical research, offer a potential new solution, and have a realistic expectation that the innovation will be developed further by the market.
The next deadline for applications is 6th January 2012 at 1700 GMT.
