Digital Health Technology Catalyst Briefing Event

Alder Hey Innovation Service, with support from KTN and local partners, are hosting a briefing event for Innovate UK on Round 2 of the Digital Health Technology Catalyst (DHTC) funding on 15th February 2018.

If you are unable to attend this, there will also be a similar event on 6th March in Leeds: click here to register for the Innovate UK Digital Health Technology Catalyst Funding Competition – Briefing and Collaboration Brokerage Event.

Round 2 is focused on projects in the research and development phases rather than feasibility phase so project proposals between £300K and £1 million are sought. The total funding available in this round is £8 million.

Innovate UK, as the government’s innovation agency, is tasked with driving innovations that will grow the UK economy. In health and life sciences, Innovate UK runs a number of competitions including the Digital Health Technology Catalyst which is sponsored by the government to spearhead digital innovations in healthcare. One component of this is a series of funding rounds aimed at SMEs to develop digital solutions in healthcare. Come and find out more about the full range of grant funding opportunities and innovation support activities offered by the Innovate UK family of services and programmes.

In the next DHTC funding round launching mid February, a total of £8M will be made available to support collaborative Experimental Research and Industrial Development projects of up to 30 months duration. Each project can apply for funding up to a maximum of £1M.
