jHub seeks medical ideas and innovations for UK armed forces

06 August 2018

jHub has an opportunity for the world’s most innovative medical suppliers to present their solutions to the UK armed forces through an open call for innovation.

jHub, the innovation centre for UK Joint Forces Command (JFC), which aims to find world-class technology and talent to get them into the hands of the user, is undertaking an open call for innovation in the field of defence medicine. With a £20m innovation fund (FY18/19), jHub aims to fast-track successful proposals through the procurement process within 1 year or less.

The Med Surge initiative provides a unique opportunity for businesses to submit medical solutions that could be used by the UK armed forces in the future. Importantly for suppliers, if successful, they will be fast tracked through the procurement process with pilots and awarded contracts taking place within six months to one year.

Proposals are now being accepted and companies can also meet with the jHub at Medical Innovation in October in Birmingham. The event, organised in partnership with the UK Defence Medical Services, focuses on developing the medical capability of tomorrow that will help save lives in the future.

The call for cutting-edge medical solutions is open to companies from the UK and overseas and is specifically looking for innovations that fit into six categories. Read more.

The deadline for submissions is Fri 31 Aug 2018.
