With this call for funding applications, Medtech4Health seeks to support projects that satisfy an important need and have the potential to lead to new products and services in existing or newly started companies and constellations. Innovation and commercial potential will be prioritised.
The call for funding applications is intended for collaborative projects that involve medical technology. The projects might use existing technology in a new way, or seek to develop technology that radically improves clinical results and/or makes healthcare more effective.
Sixteen million Swedish kronor has been earmarked over 2 years to support projects that are awarded financial support under this call for funding applications. It is anticipated that this sum will be shared by 10-15 different projects. The maximum support level is 50% of each project’s total budget.
The call for funding applications is intended for two or more partners where at least one of the partners is a business. Other partners may be universities or technical colleges, healthcare organisations, research institutes or other similar actors.
Note that non-Swedish partners are welcome, but only Swedish partners may co-ordinate a project.
All applications forms are in Swedish, but applications may be completed in English.
