NHS partner InnoScot Health will be holding the second in its series of informative webinars next week for innovators looking to enhance their knowledge of potential funding channels.

The second interactive webinar, entitled UK MedTech Funding Support, will be led by the organisation’s Innovation Manager Fiona Schaefer. She will be joined by Ian Murray, Programme Manager at Scottish Enterprise, who will lend his insights on strategic investment and Terry O’Neill, Head of Health at Innovate UK KTN, who will discuss the UK funding landscape.

Dr Schaefer said: “During our second webinar, we will explore various funding programmes and discuss how the right support can accelerate your journey from innovation to commercialisation while offering practical advice on how to best go about that.

“I will discuss early-stage funding, InnoScot Health’s role in that process, and the support that we can offer. We are also grateful to Ian Murray, an expert in strategic investment, for lending us his insights.

“With another specialist in the field expected to join us as well, it is set up to be a useful, instructive deep dive into this area.”

Mr Murray said: “I’m looking forward to this opportunity to speak about my work in Scottish Enterprise’s Entrepreneurship and Investment team while offering advice to those at various stages of the innovation journey – particularly on how to develop strategic scale-up plans, create investor-ready propositions, and raise appropriate growth investment.

“It’s vital that great ideas from NHS health boards receive the right support and are successfully prepared if they are to have the best chance of getting to that all-important next level of development and growth.”

The session will be rounded off by an opportunity to ask questions of the speakers. Submit your queries for our panel discussion to
