The Health Foundation to Open New Adopting Innovation Fund

06 October 2020/Categories: Grants_and_Funding

The Health Foundation is providing funding through their new Adopting Innovation programme to help health care providers create the conditions that will enable faster and more effective uptake of innovations and improvements. With the aim that health care organisations can create long-lasting impact for patients and patient care.   

Partnerships between NHS providers and local health systems across the UK are being invited to apply to establish four innovation hubs – centres of expertise and support within provider organisations to help them become better adopters.  

Partnerships will be led by provider organisations who will be expected to demonstrate how they will work with local system partners – in England with their Academic Health Science Networks, and with the relevant national bodies in Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland. 

Each of the four hubs will receive up to £475,000 in funding over two and a half years.

The Foundation will also provide guidance and specialist support to help hubs develop their approach for adoption of innovations and commission an evaluation of the programme.  

On the 16 October 2020 the Foundation will be sharing a webinar which will provide an introduction to the programme.

Expressions of interest to the programme will open on 7 October 2020 with a deadline of 11 November 2020.
