SIO Chronic Diseases call for proposals
SRP Diabetes has together with other relevant Swedish stakeholders developed the new national support structure for innovation SIO Chronic Diseases, which will fund projects translating research results into innovative treatments, diagnoses or preventive actions for diabetes, please see the SIO Chronic Diseases webpage:
VINNOVA funds “verification for growth/verifiering för tillväxt”
SRP Diabetes Innovation Officer also aids researchers in the programme in application for other available funding focusing on innovation and translation of research. Special focuses have been put on the first step of the commercial verification and several successful cases with application to Vinnovas “Verifiering för tillväxt2” exist. The goal is to very early verify the commercial potential of a project, such as market analyses, patent possibilities and the potential for further development through funding or collaboration.
