SBRI Healthcare Autumn 2014


Better health outcomes

NHS England logoThe National Health Service England and the Academic Health Science Networks have opened multiple new SBRI competitions with a total of £2.5m funding available in Phase 1 to develop technologies and innovative solutions that can provide better health outcomes in the areas of:
  • Innovation in child and adolescent mental health
  • Improving care of diabetic foot ulcer
  • Medical imaging
  • Improving efficiency and experience of outpatient services
  • Brain injury healthcare
The competitions are open to single companies or organisations from the private, public and third sectors who will ultimately be capable of supplying the NHS and its delivery partners with the resulting product or service on a commercial basis. The competitions will run in two phases: 
  • Phase 1 is intended to show the technical feasibility of the proposed concept. The development contracts placed will be for a maximum of 6 months and up to £100,000 (inc. VAT) per project 
  • Phase 2 contracts are intended to develop and evaluate prototypes or demonstration units from the more promising technologies in Phase 1. Only those projects that have completed Phase 1 successfully will be eligible for Phase 2. 
Developments will be 100% funded and suppliers for each project will be selected by an open competition process and retain the intellectual property rights (IPR) generated from the project, with certain rights of use retained by the NHS. 
The competitions open on 20 October 2014. The deadline for applications is 1200hrs on 9 December 2014.
