NIHR Surgery MedTech Co-operative is working in collaboration with Grow MedTech a new Research England funded programme to support medical technology innovation and development.
Our funding competitions are split into two categories: a strategic call focussing on future unmet needs and a more reactive call focussing on the immediate needs in surgery.
Joint Call for Technology Proposals – Bowel & Cancer Research and NIHR Surgical Med Tech Co-operative (Surgical MIC) is seeking high quality proposals for technology solutions addressing faecal incontinence.
Grow MedTech is inviting applications for Proof of Market, Proof of Feasibility and Proof of Concept projects from academic led teams at Grow MedTech partner institutions.
