Med-Tech Trial grants of up to £50,000 are available for eligible life science companies in Leicester and Leicestershire, to test and evaluate their products and services in a clinical setting. This ensures that they are working as intended, are effective and are safe for use. The gathering of this evidence is vital for companies wanting to sell their products and services to the healthcare market – including the NHS.

RESULT: 
This will enable established SMEs to flourish and grow by introducing new products and services that benefit from: innovations, identified clinical needs and incorporation or utilisation of cutting-edge technologies.  New jobs will be created and new businesses will be established.  The project’s ultimate success will be measured by the degree to which innovation is embedded in business.
