Join us on Thursday 29th April 2021 from 12:30 to 1:30pm for our funded ERDF R&I Health Accelerator webinar. You will hear from experts from academic, commercial, research and legal organisations discussing common questions and pitfalls experienced on the journey from research and innovation to launch of a new healthcare product.
The Research and Innovation (R&I) Health Accelerator is an ERDF (European Regional Development Fund) part-funded project delivered by Health Innovation Manchester, The University of Manchester, The University of Manchester Innovation Factory, Manchester City Council and Bionow.
The project invites SMEs to collaborate with Greater Manchester’s research and innovation institutions to accelerate development and improve commercialisation of innovative healthcare products and services. SMEs will be able to access expertise and support including information about navigating the health and care system, developing value propositions, ethics and regulatory advice and access to university-wide expertise.
There will also be opportunities to build lasting collaborations with researchers, Greater Manchester universities, NHS organisations and the broader health innovation community. These collaborations will be used to share knowledge, address the barriers to adoption and co-develop proposals for research and development projects.
Companies engaged in the support programme, and collaborating with a research institution, will have the opportunity to apply for innovation vouchers (24 x £2,499) and follow on vouchers (5 x £20,000). In addition, there will be post-doctoral research assistant support available (15 x £20,000) from The University of Manchester.
