NIHR Invention for Innovation (i4i) Scheme Workshop

The Academic Health Science Network for the North East and North Cumbria is delighted to invite you to a dedicated training workshop focussing upon NIHR Invention for Innovation (i4i) funding and will be held on Tuesday 3rd October 2017 from 13:00 to 16:30 at Durham County Cricket Club, Chester le Street.

The i4i funding workshop will be facilitated by Ed Cooper from VitalSix Ltd and Dr Ian Newington, Acting Head of Special Projects at the NIHR and who leads i4i scheme.

i4i supports collaborative research and development projects in medtech SMEs, universities and the NHS that demonstrate proof-of-principle proof-of-principle and have a clear pathway towards adoption and commercialisation. The expected output is an advanced or clinically validated prototype medical device, technology or intervention. The aim is to de-risk projects and make them attractive to follow-on funders and investors.

Ed and Ian will be leading a practical workshop, providing guidance and advice based on real examples of previous applications. The aim of this workshop is to provide delegates with top-tips for developing an attractive proposition to the i4i scheme.

Further information on i4i can be found on the NIHR Invention for Innovation web page
