Innovate UK and the Medical Research Council (as part of UKRI) have launched a competition to invest in collaborative consortia developing integrated diagnostics.

  • This competition is looking for projects that build on recent investments in new healthcare technologies. They should deliver new diagnostic systems by integrating across technologies, data, care pathways and systems.
  • Innovate UK will invest up to £17 million in the research, development and evaluation of integrated diagnostic solutions. An additional investment of up to £3 million is available for oncology-focused projects from Cancer Research UK.
  • The maximum grant your consortium can apply for is £3.5 million.
  • The deadline for applications is 23rd September 2019 and Innovate UK expects projects to range in size up to £10 million. Businesses of any size may apply, and consortia must include at least 1 NHS or academic partner and 1 SME.
