Are you a Medtech SME based in NWC looking for support to get your innovative Medical Device, Diagnostic or Digital Health Tech to market?

The National Institute for Health and Care Research (NIHR) and UKRI STFC and Innovation Agency AHSN NWC, working in partnership, invite you to apply for a place at this roadshow specifically tailored for medtech SMEs based in the North East to find out more about the local NIHR Infrastructure:

  • opportunities for non-dilutive funding
  • how we can help SMEs to formulate research plans, find collaborators, supporting centres, data, samples and facilities for R&D
  • how we can support SMEs to conduct clinical trials in the NHS
  • connecting you to other organisations that can help
  • how we fit into the wider health innovation ecosystem in the North West Coast and beyond

This is one of a series of events that will take place across the country. Future events will be publicised on the NIHR website when the venues and dates are finalised.

On the Day – we’ll keep the formal presentations short to give you the chance to engage more interactively with the things most relevant to your needs.
