With our expertise in non-dilutive funding, we’ve helped thousands of life science researchers realize their ambitions.

Funding for life science research

Research grants, subsidies and loans such as those provided by programmes like Horizon 2020, SME Instrument, Fast Track to Innovation, Eurostars, ERC, etc. are excellent means to finance innovative academic research projects or companies.

Whether you are an academic or entrepreneur there are clear advantages to non-dilutive funding. While companies can obtain critical cash to support their development and retain ownership of their company, academics benefit from a boost in their careers and the opportunity to launch their research lines while networking with KOLs in their fields. When you are awarded a major grant or subsidy, your research/technology/company gains extra validation in the eyes of your peers, competitors and investors, attracting further opportunities for R&D and investment.

There are hundreds of grants, subsidies and loans available, with the procedures obtaining them complex, time consuming and highly competitive. We understand this can be intimidating and discouraging – it was for us too when we started.
