Strand 1 closing 15 April 2020

Strand 2 closing 13 May 2020

Strand 3 closing 1 July 2020


Call objectives

  • Create porosity between sectors by enabling career mobility
  • Boost the skills, knowledge and career development of people
  • Intensify knowledge exchange between the biomedical industry and academia
  • Add value to the Biomedical Sciences sector and the UK economy by increasing productivity

Proposals can come from any discipline but either the seconding or host organisation must be a business within the biomedical sciences sector (such as pharmaceutical, biotech, devices, biomedical engineering or diagnostics).
