Fully funded programme taking Precision Medicine companies to China now open

Innovate UK’s Global Business Innovation Programme, delivered by Enterprise Europe Network, is organising a visit to China for up to 15 Precision Medicine businesses who are working with technologies that enable early and accurate diagnosis to inform patient treatment, as well as the availability of targeted therapies.

More specifically the programme will select Precision Medicine companies with a focus on:

  • Early Diagnosis and detection of disease (including remote and Point of Care monitoring)
  • Digital innovation and data management in medicine, (including ‘omics data integration, AI application to medical imaging and clinical decision support)

The fully funded programme consists of a preparation phase in the UK, an 8-day programme of activity to China and subsequent follow up support, to help your business develop relationships with partners in the region, allowing you to gain a foothold in a market set for extensive growth.

This is an excellent opportunity to showcase the best of British science and to build international collaborative partnerships that deliver sustained economic and health benefits in both countries.

This programme is open to UK registered, small and medium sized enterprises operating across the Precision Medicine sector.

Innovate UK and the Enterprise Europe Network will organise and fund flights, hotels, and in-country logistics for all participants on the visit to the country. On acceptance to the programme a commitment fee of £500 excl. vat will be obtained from each successful company, which will be returned after their involvement in the international mission and agreeing an action plan post visit.

There is a competitive process to participate in the programme following an evaluation process, in which only the best applicants will be successful.

This must be completed and submitted by midnight, 25th November.

Please note: expressing interest/making an application does not secure your place. Successful applicants will be informed by Friday 30th November.
