Other funding


If you are looking for funding to help support the development of an innovative healthcare product or service there are a number of potential funding sources available to companies working alone or in collaboration with an NHS organisation. In some cases, the funding may need to be applied for by an NHS partner organisation and in others a company can apply directly for funding. In most cases a condition of the funding will be that a collaboration agreement is put in place between all of the parties involved in the work to cover IP ownership and revenue sharing arrangements.ÿIn addition to the funds listed below, it is always worth carrying out a general search for funding in the area in which you are working, as grants are often topic-specific.
