Wellcome Trust Funding: Translation Awards
For applied R&D projects that address an unmet need in healthcare. They are open to academic researchers and companies, and can address almost any area of healthcare.
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.
FINAL CALL for Preliminary Applications deadline is 27 August 2012.
