Up to £4 million available for as many as four applications of technology originally designed for space that could improve NHS treatment.
Programme: UK Space Agency
Award: Share of up to £4 million
Opens: 10th Aug 2018
Closes: 30th Sep 2018
In the joint initiative with NHS England, innovators will bid for money to turn technology originally designed for space, from exploration to satellite communications, into medical applications that improve NHS treatment and care.
The competition has 4 categories:
Ideas can be entered into one, or more, categories.
Ideas may be totally new, or ideas that are already in use that could be rolled out across NHS England.
All ideas must utilise Space, or data coming from space. These assets do not have to be used at all times (for example terrestrial communications may be used, supported by satellite connectivity where a terrestrial connection is not available) but must play a part in the solution.
Entrants may enter more than one idea into the competition.
Ideas may be funded at 75% for SMEs or at 50% for large business. The remaining cost of development can be met with cash, or with in kind contributions.
