The NIHR Invention for Innovation (i4i) programme invites proposals to Call 12 of its Challenge Awards on Real World Implementation.
The Challenge Awards will fund investigations of medtech innovations in healthcare settings. The aim is to shorten the evidence gap between the safety/efficacy typical of a newly or nearly CE marked technology and what is required for decisions by commissioners and regulators. At the same time, this will de-risk the product for follow-on investment. Please note that 'nearly'  CE marked technologies refers to technologies that are currently under Notified Body assessment, whereby all of the mandatory testing has been completed. 

The deadline for this call is on 10 June 2021 (1pm BST).

The NIHR i4i Team will be hosting a Webinar on 14 April, 11am – 12 pm BST to unpack the scope of the Challenge Awards. Register online to join us.
