The Innovator Awards are:
- open to individuals and teams from not-for-profit and commercial organisations

- open to applicants anywhere in the world.
Wellcome's Director of Innovations Stephen Caddick announced our new Innovation for Impact strategy earlier this month.
Initially, the Innovator Awards will focus on translational research in:
- mental health

- neglected tropical diseases.
We'll consider work in any discipline on any type of technology.
