We like original, early-stage software ideas that help benefit scientific research and offer grants and bags of friendly advice. Submit your application and you’ll be on your way to bringing your idea to life.
We are big fans of interoperability and continually look for companies which fit our mission with the goal of helping the research community to work more efficiently and discover more. We offer grants of up to £25,000 and bags of friendly advice.
As part of our 10 year anniversary, we’re looking into exciting ways of taking our Catalyst Grant to new heights. Until then we are not accepting applications.

How it Works
Once you have submitted your application we will evaluate your application and get back to you with an initial response within three weeks. Applicants who pass the first stage will be invited to present their idea. This can be done remotely (phone or video conference) or in person at our office. Following this, we aim to reach our final decision within 4 weeks. Priority will be given to applicants whose ideas are truly innovative and who make the strongest case on how to make effective use of the grant. It’s that simple.
