How We Provide Services
What can we do?
Through our support to businesses, D4D has found that it can help in
- De -risking innovative projects;
- Identifying and addressing unknowns from project outsets;
- Eliminating surprises through the development and commercialisation process;
- Identifying the best people and organisations to work with.
Four areas which have proven value are:
Concept validation: Checking that product concepts match real user needs; avoiding the trap of trying to sell products to customers who don’t really want them.
Regulatory services: Establishing a reliable route to regulatory approvals; addressing specific unknowns right from the project outset.
Grant Application Support: Helping businesses to identify appropriate sources for development grants and putting together winning grant proposals.
Clinical Evidence Planning: Understanding the immediate business needs for clinical evidence and defining a strategy to deliver it efficiently.
