Proof of concept within life sciences

The purpose of the grant is to bridge the gap between basic research and commercialisation of research results within the Life Sciences area. The proof of concept grant offers persons who are receiving or have received a grant from the Swedish Research Council the opportunity to further develop their research results. This is done by deepening the scientific or technical verification of the results, and carrying out activities to prepare for innovation or commercialisation.

The Swedish Research Council will support projects involving the development of methods or products for treatment, prevention and diagnosis, and where the suitability and usability of the method or product is verified.
