They must be aiming to improve patient outcomes, transform healthcare delivery and/or enable more efficient delivery of healthcare.

Feasibility studies can be from an individual or collaboration and will range in size from total project costs of £50,000 to £75,000. Whereas industrial research and experimental development projects must be collaborative and work with at least one other grant-claiming partner (NHS, research institutions and/or other healthcare providers etc.), with total project costs of £500,000 to £1 million.
