Innovate UK has up to £15 million to stimulate innovation in health and life sciences through a variety of project sizes.
A growing, ageing and increasingly wealthy global population is placing more and more demand on health services and on food production. This is creating new opportunities for UK businesses to develop new medicines and therapies and for improved food production.
The competition will support projects in the following areas:
increasing yield, quality and sustainability in agriculture and food production
supporting advanced therapies (cell and gene therapies), precision medicine or pre-clinical technologies
developing bioscience techniques and capabilities that have the potential to improve healthcare and/or agriculture and food production in the future
It is the second of 2 competitions in this financial year supporting innovation in health and life sciences.
