A new Innovate UK challenge
has opened for digital health technology developers. They are seeking subject matter experts (SME) to lead a group in designing digital health innovations which achieve at least one of these objectives: improving patient outcomes, transforming healthcare delivery, and enabling more efficient delivery of healthcare. Total funding is £35m. It appears that each winner will be granted up to £8m as follows: feasibility–£50,000 to £75,000; industrial research and experimental development–£500,000 to £1 million.
This follows on our previously reported £12m Biomedical Catalyst program [TTA 5 Apr]. Innovate UK’s digital health program is being funded by the Industrial Strategy Challenge Fund which is also backing battery power and robotics challenge programs.
Detailed information and application information may be found here. Applications close Wednesday 11 October 2017 at noon. Hat tip to Tynetec via Twitter. (Illustration from Innovate UK and innovation leader Chris Sawyer’s blog.)
