UK’s Wellcome Trust to fund tech transfer projects in mainland Europe

Europe’s largest medical research charity, the Wellcome Trust, is to expand its technology transfer activities beyond the UK, with plans for mainland Europe to access £55 million in translation funding. The plans were revealed at a meeting with Scandinavian researchers in Stockholm organised with Science|Business as part of the ACES academic entrepreneurship awards.


The Trust, which has an active endowment of about £13 billion, will grant two- to three-year translation awards to bridge the funding gap from early-stage technologies to the point where they are derisked and taken up for development by the market.
