Invention for Innovation - Challenge Awards

  Wednesday, 12 Jan 2022 | Funding Deadline

The NIHR Invention for Innovation (i4i) Programme supports the preclinical and clinical development of medical technologies in areas of existing or emerging patient need. The NIHR Invention for Innovation (i4i) programme is inviting proposals to Call 13 of its Challenge Awards on real world implementation.

The Challenge Awards will fund investigations of MedTech innovations in healthcare settings. The aim is to shorten the evidence gap between the safety/efficacy typical of a newly or nearly CE-marked technology and what is required for decisions by commissioners and regulators. At the same time, this will de-risk the product for follow-on investment. Please note that nearly CE-marked technologies refers to technologies that are currently under Notified Body assessment, whereby all of the mandatory testing has been completed.


Deadline for proposals: 12 January 2022
