Innovate UK will invest up to £6 million in innovation projects to support the development of precision medicine technologies.

“Applications can be for feasibility studies, or industrial research and experimental development projects.

Feasibility projects can last up to 12 months and have total project costs of up to £100,000. We will fund:

  • single-company SME projects
  • collaborative projects led by an SME

Research and experimental development projects can last up to 24 months and have total project costs of between £1 million to £2 million. We will fund:

  • projects that are led by a business or research and technology organisation
  • collaborative projects

Collaborations must include at least one other grant-claiming partner (such as an NHS organisation, another healthcare provider, a business, a Catapult or other research technology organisation, or a research base or third-sector organisation).

Projects must show an improvement in the competitiveness and productivity of at least one UK SME involved in the project, but the project does not need to be led by an SME.

You must explain clearly how your proposed technology will advance precision medicine. We encourage applications that can provide evidence of engagement with regional precision medicine centres of expertise across the UK.”
