External funding

The UK has a wide variety of funding streams that enable translational research and help bridge the gap in development between early stage technology and commercialisation.

Our experienced funding manager can help you with grant applications and provide access to our resources to help you expand your R&D activities.

Translational funding to bridge the gap in development

Translational funding such as grants can be used to bridge the gap in development between early stage technology resulting from university research, and its commercialisation, usually known as the valley of death. 

In the UK, we are fortunate to be able to access a wide variety of funding streams that enable translational research. Grant funding can provide Start-ups and Spin outs with a vital source of non-dilutive funding or a mechanism by which academics can translate their research. 

Our experienced funding team will help you secure funding

Our experienced funding manager can help you with your grant applications. We have experience in applying for grants from different sources and can help you secure funding from diverse external sources such as the European Union, UKRI and charities such as the Wellcome Trust.

In addition, we have extensive expertise in delivering collaborative innovative projects and can provide access to project managers, data scientists and systems architects. These resources will be provided with a focus on helping SMEs and Scottish-based organisations access larger sources of external funding, enabling them to expand their R&D activities.
