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.
