OPPORTUNITY: for researchers with early-stage innovative ideas that align with UKRI Industrial Strategy Challenge Fund vision for the Healthy Ageing Challenge. This opportunity is particularly aimed at non-biotech innovations and of particular relevance to researchers in design, technology and social science fields.
The competition is open to UK academics at a variety of career stages and from any disciplinary background. Award is for £62,500 to fund the staff time and resources needed to meet a key milestone that demonstrates the potential of their idea. In addition UKRI are commissioning a programme of support and will fund international travel. They expect that this initial investment will put awardees in a strong position to secure further support to take their idea forward, whether that be a business case to secure funding to commercialise their idea or a case to fund further research.
The initial application is a light touch format of no more that 3 sides. For more information please see: https://www.ukri.org/news/international-collaboration-to-find-new-ideas-for-healthy-longevity/
