“Accelerating the path towards commercialisation

The Network argued the case for a Bridging Fund to optimize the probability that successful research opportunities could be “advanced towards commercialisation”. Since inception in September 2015, the Life Sciences Bridging Fund and the Network have worked in close collaboration – the Bridging Fund provides proof of concept funding to support the commercial development of academic research within Welsh Universities. This funding supports the translational research required to demonstrate the commercial potential of academic research conducive to realise economic and patient benefits – 9 NRN projects have secured Bridging Fund awards to develop their commercial potential.

There are no current calls for applications.
