Health Funding Map
The map was developed by KTN and the BioIndustry Association (BIA) with the help of a wide range of funders. It helps in the navigation of the complicated world of health innovation funding.
This funding map helps in the navigation of the complicated world of innovation funding. It is not meant to be comprehensive, rather, it is designed to start a conversation about your needs. The aim of the map is to enable a level of understanding to be developed online but, more importantly, it provides an opportunity for innovators to start a conversation with KTN about how we can help you to navigate the innovation landscape.
The map was developed by KTN and the BioIndustry Association (BIA) with the help of a wide range of funders who provided information about their specific funding schemes. The information provided is generally available on the websites of the individual funders, not all funding schemes are always open. Information on the current status of a particular funding scheme can be obtained by contacting Terry O’Neill, Head of Health.
