Themed Calls for Action

Throughout the year Innovate UK run themed calls to stimulate KTP projects within priority areas. The following competitions are currently open, applications can be submitted on a rolling basis by any of the submission dates listed above, up until the specified closing date.

 

Better interactions between people and machines

Up to £1m is going to be invested into 10 KTP projects in the area of user experience (UX). The aim is to encourage new, enhanced forms of interaction between computing systems and the people who use them.

Proposals may address technologies that contribute to these new forms, such as sensing information about the user, or those that improve specific types of experience, such as mobile and wearable devices.

It is part of a £1.5m Innovate UK programme to stimulate innovations in user experience. The KTP competition runs in parallel with a competition for feasibility studies.

Closes: 15th April 2015

 

New Modelling Systems for Stratified Medicine 

Up £1 million is to be invested into establishing KTP projects in developing modelling approaches to support the use of stratified medicine in the UK, across bioinformatics, systems biology, health economics and analytical algorithms.

Innovate UK are seeking proposals to develop new modelling systems that will:

  • integrate healthcare and science data to better predict if a new product is likely to have an effect and improve patient outcomes
  • provide new multi-parameter algorithms that can be commercialised to diagnose treatments
  • provide health economic models for innovative products that will create new clinical care pathways

This targeted competition aims to help businesses achieve access to modelling expertise that will allow development of new diagnostic approaches and improve the earlier evaluation of diagnostic products.It is part of the Stratified Medicine Innovation Platform that is currently funding a £50 million programme of research and development over 5 years.

Closes: 18th November 2015
