UK businesses and research organisations can apply for grants to carry out projects focused on developing digital and data-enabled tools, as well as multi-modal approaches in precision medicine.
The Innovate UK (IUK) Advancing Precision Medicine Competition will fund industry-led collaborative projects which aim to:
- More accurately diagnose conditions and stratify patients to the most appropriate treatments.
- Increase the application of integrated and multi-modal approaches to determine risk and diagnosis and to predict prognostic outcomes.
This is round 1 of a 2-round competition: Round 1 focuses on musculoskeletal and cardiovascular disease, and other chronic conditions excluding oncology. Proposals must demonstrate how they addresses an unmet clinical need or responds to NHS demand signalling.
Up to £10 million has been allocated to this round of the competition, to fund industrial research and experimental development projects. Each project’s total costs must be between £500,000 and £1 million. Funded proposals can include experimental evaluation, within a clinical environment, prototyping, product development planning, IP protection, and regulatory planning.
The competition is open to collaborations only. To lead a project, an organisation must be a UK registered business of any size or research and technology organisation (RTO). To collaborate with the lead, an organisation must be a business, academic institution, charity, not-for-profit, public sector organisation, or RTO. Applicants must be or involve at least one micro, small or medium-sized enterprise (SME).
The deadline for applications is Wednesday 8 March 2023 (11:00 GMT).
