“Connect is aimed at small and medium-sized med-tech enterprises (SMEs) in need of a funding boost to reach their next stage in the development pathway and accelerate the development of promising medical technologies.“
Alex Leach, Deputy Director of Programmes

The NIHR Invention for Innovation (i4i) programme invites proposals to Call 8 of its researcher-led Connect.

Offering up to £150,000 over a maximum of 12 month period, i4i Connect helps SMEs get to the point where they can apply for further funding, in particular for a full i4i Product Development Award (PDA) or to support projects at any stage of the translational research and development pathway to further de-risk them for follow on investment.

The deadline for this call is on 21 February 2024 (1pm BST).
