This is a competition for a primer award in the Biomedical Catalyst.

Biomedical Catalyst supports the development of innovative healthcare products, technologies and processes. These can include:

  • 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 Biomedical Catalyst has 4 types of funding award. These are: feasibility, primer, early stage and late stage. The late stage award is running alongside this one. They are designed to help SMEs developing a product or process to provide an innovative solution to a health and care challenge. The scheme supports progression from initial concept through to late stage development.

We welcome applications from any sector or discipline.

If your project’s total costs or duration fall outside of our eligibility criteria, email us at least 10 days before the competition closes.
