The second funding opportunity for Transformative Healthcare Technologies is a high risk, high return initiative and will be implemented in two phases. Phase 1, the development phase, will identify projects that demonstrate readiness in order to deliver an ambitious programme of research in Phase 2.
In the programme delivery phase, awardees in development phase will be invited to bid into a second call, where we envisage supporting around four to six substantive programmes of research.
EPSRC is currently inviting outline proposals to the second call for transformative healthcare technologies for offer of awards in phase 1, the development phase.
EPSRC is looking to invest in ambitious and highly adventurous healthcare technologies (HT) research driven by curiosity that aligns to the HT theme’s strategic priorities. The healthcare technologies theme is keen to build on the first call by expanding its portfolio of potentially transformative healthcare grants.
Please refer to the call document for guidance before submitting your proposal.
- Up to £6 million is available through this call to seed fund feasibility studies of maximum £300K (80% FEC) each
- We expect to fund around 20 projects for 15 months with a set start date of 01 September 2021.
Please note, at the 9th month mark of feasibility studies there will be another call for offer of awards for the second (delivery) phase.
