The aim of the Biomedical Catalyst is to support the development of innovative healthcare products, technologies and processes. These can include (but are not limited to):

  • disease prevention and proactive management of health and chronic conditions
  • earlier and better detection and diagnosis of disease, leading to better patient outcomes
  • tailored treatments that either change the underlying disease or offer potential cures

We are also running a feasibility award competition. You should make sure that you are applying for the correct competition.

If you submit for the wrong award your application will be immediately rejected and you will not be able to reapply into this round. You can only submit the same application twice to Innovate UK.

We welcome applications from any sector or discipline.

We expect the total project costs to range in size from £250,000 to £4 million. Projects should last between 12 and 36 months. Successful applicants will be notified of their start date by Innovate UK.
