AdviSe ME Competition open for applications

The National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) is offering the chance to win £15,000 worth of scientific advice through its AdviSe ME Competition.

The competition is open to healthcare SMEs, academic research groups or charities who are developing transformative healthcare products for the NHS. Eligible products include medical devices, medicinal products, diagnostics tests or tools, healthcare apps, and cell or gene therapies.

Successful applicants will get access to NICE's Light Scientific Advice service, which guides researchers in considering the clinical and cost effectiveness of products - considerations that can help inform a product development strategy.

Applications must be received by 13 October and the winners will be announced in January 2018.

For more information and an application pack, visit the NICE website.
