As part of our commitment to business development, the Innovation Agency offers advice and guidance on the commercialisation of your product or service.


We can provide access our network and supply chain to support the design, prototyping and development of new products, their manufacture/assembly, and advise on the sourcing of potential licensees, the preparation and negotiation of licences, and the preparation of joint venture agreements.

We also support businesses through the national Small Business Research Initiative (SBRI) Healthcare scheme which funds development contracts between companies and the NHS.

Business to Business development is also available – our regular Ecosystem events offer small and medium sized companies and larger corporates the opportunity to discuss joint initiatives. See further event opportunities here.

The European Institute of Innovation & Technology offers funding opportunities for SMEs to support commercialisation via the EIT Health Accelerator programme.

If you require additional information please contact our Business Connect Team on 01772 520263 or via the online Business Connect enquiry form.
