CTCM Round Two Funding

CTCM Round 2 Expressions of Interest are NOW CLOSED

The Clinical Translation and Commercialisation Medtech (CTCM) program, delivered by MTPConnect, is offered under the 2020 Early Stage Translation and Commercialisation Support Grant of the Medical Research Future Fund's Medical Research Commercialisation Initiative.

The CTCM program can provide between $250,000 and $1.5 million to SMEs to support early clinical development of medical devices with commercial potential. SMEs are defined as having 199 employees or less.

Projects must focus on the development of a medical device for human use, the purpose of which is to diagnose, prevent, monitor, treat or alleviate a disease or injury, or modify or monitor anatomy or physiological functions of the body.

Funding will only be awarded to projects where the device's capability has already been validated with research and/or preclinical studies.

Eligible applications must include some level of innovation in hardware (proposals relating to pure software as a medical device (SaMD) are ineligible).

The project term for funded CTCM Projects is a maximum of 24-months. To be eligible, applicants are required to provide a co-contribution dependent on the total CTCM funding requested. Additional in-kind or cash contributions above this threshold will be viewed favourably.

Applications for CTCM Round 2 funding CLOSED on Friday 7 October 2022 at 16:00 AEDT.
