Maybe you’ve got some nice research results, insights, technology or IP, perhaps via a typical research council grant to get to this stage.

But your work is not yet ready for commercialisation. Maybe the next step is not ‘research enough’ for a conventional grant, but the work is too far from market for a commercial organisation to fund it?

What you need is ‘translational funding’ – to plug the gap between research and commercialisation.

Julian Peck of Cambridge Enterprise will be talking about Translational Funding on

Tuesday 26th November, 12:00 – 14:00 at Cambridge Enterprise

Lunch provided at 12:00 and proceedings start at 12:30
