Health Innovation Challenge Fund

The Health Innovation Challenge Fund (HICF) is a parallel funding partnership between the Wellcome Trust and the Department of Health. The funders are collaborating to stimulate the creation of innovative healthcare products, technologies and interventions, and facilitate their development for the benefit of patients in the NHS and beyond. The HICF has a succession of thematic calls for proposals, each selected to focus on unmet needs in healthcare relevant to the NHS. The HICF offers translational funding to progress innovative approaches to healthcare from the proof-of-concept stage to early clinical studies in man. Details of the funded projects can be found here.
