Royal Society Innovation Awards - deadline 7 July 2016

The Royal Society has opened a competition for two Innovation Awards of up to £250,000: one for research in the Physical sciences and one for research in the Biological sciences. This scheme is aimed at scientists who wish to develop a proven novel concept through to a near-market product ready for commercial exploitation.

The Royal Society Innovation Awards and the Royal Society Translation Award are designed to promote innovation and fill the funding gap between scientific research and the exploitation of an idea through venture capital investment. 

If the idea or concept is at an earlier stage of development, you should apply for the Royal Society Translation Award, which provides initial support to test the feasibility of a project.

The deadline for applications for an Innovation Award is 7th July 2016.
