Momentum Fund

The Momentum Fund has been established to support the introduction and adoption of needs-led, evidence-based innovations into our healthcare system within the Health Innovation Manchester footprint.

This will improve the health of our citizens and also promote economic development and wealth creation through the growth of local businesses and jobs.

The Momentum Fund is specifically designed to provide funding support to help organisations with innovative products or services accelerate progress to significant milestones. These innovations must be either market ready or close to market ready.

This Momentum call is seeking innovations in two areas:

  • Urgent and Emergency Care
  • Cardiometabolic (cardiovascular disease, diabetes, obesity and nutrition).

Please note that the eligibility criteria is different for each call, however the application process is the same for both.

Funding Requirements

Funding support allocated by Health Innovation Manchester can be used to pay for anything that is clearly related to advancing the innovative product/service, including the following:

  • Market research
  • Evaluation of an innovation (e.g. bench of clinical testing) including application for MHRA approval to conduct a clinical trial
  • Third party professional fees (e.g. project management, health economic analysis)
  • Activities that will enable early stage revenue generation (e.g. limited production and sales, business plan development)

Applications for the Momentum Fund will only be accepted on completion of the funding application form which can be accessed through the Health Innovation Manchester application portal at
