Medical Technologies in the Leeds City Region: Driving economic growth, improving health and care – Strength in Places Fund

In July 2018, an expression of interest led by Professor John Fisher was submitted on Medical Technologies in the Leeds City Region: Driving economic growth, improving health and care to UK Research & Innovation’s Strength in Places Fund.  The expression of interest has been awarded early stage funding to develop a full proposal – to be submitted to UK Research and Innovation by 18 September 2019.

If successful, the programme will attract £18M UKRI funding into the region.  Funding will be available for technology proof of concept projects and clinical evidence projects.

Deadline: 17:00 on 21 June 2019
