Healthcare Impact Partnerships Call 2018/2019
EPSRC will shortly be inviting proposals for Healthcare Impact Partnerships. This call is a follow-up to calls in 2013, 2014/15, 2015/16 and 2016/17. A budget of up to £5 million will be available to support 5-7 projects that progress previous EPSRC-funded research towards generating impact in healthcare. This call is intended to support novel Engineering and Physical Sciences research that is aligned to the Healthcare Technologies theme strategy and contributes to at least one of the Healthcare Technologies Grand Challenges.
Applicants will be required to partner with both clinicians and business, bringing together a range of expertise to provide the support and guidance required to promote impact in the healthcare sector.
The call will launch for proposals in June 2018. Applicants will be required to complete an Intent to Submit stage by 12 July 2018, with the closing date for full applications on 23 August 2018.
