NHIC funding schemes
Our three funding streams are for projects which address an unmet healthcare need and have demonstrated ‘proof-of-principle’ supported by experimental data. Each scheme targets different stages of the innovation development pipeline and all proposals for our funding must address intellectual property management, the commercialisation strategy and public health impact of the innovation. Collaborations with industry are encouraged if they strengthen the proposal.
