External funding and investment is often the key to unlocking innovation implementation within the NHS. However, there are a wide range of potential sources and types of funding depending on factors such as who is seeking funding (e.g. NHS organisation, academia, industry, voluntary sector), the amount of funding sought, the purpose of funding sought (e.g. research, development, demonstration, commercialisation, or evaluation), the size and stage of business growth (e.g. early stage or established), and whether the applicant is seeking grant funding, match funding, or investment with intention to payback with a return.
The Yorkshire & Humber AHSN is constantly horizon scanning to identify funding opportunities for industry and NHS organisations in order to facilitate collaboration and accelerate innovation in healthcare and as new initiatives are launched they will be listed in the funding opportunities section of our website. In addition, we also send a monthly funding bulletin via e-mail which contains the latest funding opportunities. Please take a look at the latest monthly funding bulletin here.
To sign up to receive the funding bulletin, please e-mail: sophie.bates@yhahsn.
