Apply for a Translate MedTech Secondment

Researchers developing medical technologies can apply for support and funding to gain fresh insights from new environments.

Translate MedTech has funding to support up to 10 secondments to enable researchers to temporarily take up a role in a complementary organisation, or to host a clinician, healthcare provider, or collaborator from industry or academia.

Applications to this scheme must support the development of innovation skills and/or progress technologies towards clinical application.

Secondment support on offer

We can provide:

– guidance and advice pre-application
– identifying a placement suited to your needs
– introduction to academics in other institutions
– contact with clinicians
– help to identify an industry specialist
– provide up to £2500 to cover the cost of travel and accommodation

A host organisation can come from across the sector. Examples include hospitals and healthcare providers, companies, innovation teams, international laboratories, and more.
