In addition to the Welsh Governments Economic Resilience Fund for businesses, a new initiative to support research and development has been launched.

The coronavirus outbreak has presented us with a number of challenges and stretched our capacity to deliver products, processes and services that meet the growing demand placed on our NHS and care services.

The Welsh Government are looking to support Innovative businesses and Research Organisations based in Wales to deliver the solutions that address these challenges.

Challenges include;

  • Development and supply of ventilator products and other Medical devices
  • Infection Control and Testing
  • Meeting the demand for Personal Protective Equipment
  • Development of rapid Sanitisation techniques and products

We need ideas that can be rapidly developed and tested with potential to be scaled and used across Wales over the coming months.

If you have an idea for an R&D project to develop a new or improved product or process that can help, we want to hear from you.

We have a simple application for you to put forward your proposal.  You will be supported by our team of highly experienced Innovation Specialists who will provide advice on the options available, to make the most of your innovative ideas.
