Health and Wellbeing : NIHR Invention for Innovation (i4i) Programme Event
Hosted by Professor Karen Bloor, Research Theme Champion for Health and Wellbeing
Researchers from any discipline are welcome and no prior funding from or knowledge of NIHR is required.
About the i4i programme
I4i is a translational funding scheme that supports preclinical and clinical development of innovative medical technologies. I4i aims to ‘de-risk’ early stage projects with strong potential for commercialisation and use in the NHS and make them attractive to follow-on funders/investors.
About the event
This is an opportunity to hear from the Director of the i4i programme, Martin Hunt, exactly what makes a strong and fundable bid. Advisers from the Research Design Service Yorkshire and the Humber will also be available to give informal advice.
