Network+ members are encouraged to consider applying for EPSRC’s latest round of proposals for its Healthcare Impact Partnerships.

A budget of £5 million is available to support projects that must progress previous EPSRC funded research towards impact within a healthcare application. This call is only open to proposals which are within remit of the following themes:

  • Antimicrobial Resistance (AMR)
  • Novel Computational and Mathematical Sciences
  • Imaged Guided Therapies and Interventions

Proposals should build upon existing strengths and expertise and demonstrate potential to address an unmet healthcare need and/or offer significant added value over current or alternative healthcare solutions.

Applicants will be required to work in partnership with both clinical and business partners to progress their previous research outputs towards impact. This should be a three-way relationship, combining the existing research programme with a both business and clinical partners, in order to enable the next logical step towards healthcare impact. All partner(s) will be expected to play an active role in the design and progress of the project as well as demonstrating significant direct or in kind contributions towards the project. Projects should involve clear demonstration of clinical engagement in order to ensure the research will address an unmet clinical need.
