The Innovation Funds have been established to support the introduction and adoption of needs-led, evidence-based innovations into our healthcare system within the Health Innovation Manchester footprint. This will improve the health of our citizens and also promote economic development and wealth creation through the growth of local businesses and jobs.
The Energise Fund is specifically designed to support proof of concept or prototyping projects for a defined application. Applications will be welcomed from innovators within the NHS and SMEs. Priority will be given to Greater Manchester based innovators; this includes inward investment companies who have a base in the GM area.
All applications must include involvement from an NHS or Social Care organisation from within the Health Innovation Manchester footprint.
Applicants must apply using the Innovation Nexus portal and SMEs are advised to complete an Innovation Nexus business enquiry (via the same link) prior to applying to the Innovation funds. The Energise Fund is currently closed for applications.
