Following the successful pilot in 2013, EPSRC invites proposals for Healthcare Impact Partnerships. This call is open to proposals which are within remit of the cross-cutting capability areas of Disruptive Sensing and Analysis and Medical Device Design and Innovation as defined in the new EPSRC strategy document, towards impact within a healthcare application. Proposals should build upon existing strengths and expertise and demonstrate potential to address an unmet healthcare need and/or offer significant added value over current or alternative healthcare solutions.
A total budget of £5 million is available to support projects that must progress previous EPSRC funded research towards impact within a healthcare application. This call is open to eligible UK academics who have held an EPSRC grant or portfolio of grants relevant to the capabilities of Disruptive Sensing and Analysis or Medical Device Design and Innovation.
This call is closely aligned to the EPSRC Healthcare Technologies strategy; a new way to think about how Engineering and Physical Sciences researchers can tackle current and emerging health challenges facing society.
Applicants wishing to apply must submit an “Intention to Submit” form by the 27th August 2015, with the final closing date falling on the 24th September 2015
