The Medtech Accelerator

The Medtech Accelerator is aimed at health and care innovators and has been set up to facilitate the early stage development of innovations in the broad area of medical technology (devices, diagnostics, software and eHealth) that meet unmet clinical needs within the NHS. It is a joint venture between Eastern AHSN, Health Enterprise East, New Anglia and Greater Cambridge and Greater Peterborough Local Enterprise Partnerships.


Proof of Concept Awards of between £15,000 and £125,000 are available to individuals or teams with innovations based primarily on NHS intellectual property (IP) that show the potential to create new company opportunities within the East of England.
