Event description

Description

The Business Engagement Team is pleased to announce that we have been awarded £200,000 from the Medical Research Council to deliver the MRC Proximity to Discovery (P2D) Industry Engagement Fund.

The fund aims to overcome the bottleneck to the establishment of new collaborations by supporting early interactions and knowledge exchange between industry and academic researchers. The competition will be structured around two schemes, Relationship Incubator and Industry Secondment, and will invite application from across the biomedical space, including but not exclusive to:

  • Therapeutics
  • Medical Devices
  • Diagnostics
  • Digital Health

The launch event will include an overview of the funding schemes and guidance for developing proposals. The meeting will end with lunch and opportunity for networking and getting advice on your P2D proposal ideas from panel members, business engagement and research support services.

Please note that this event is for academics eligible to apply for grant funding.
