Funding for digital technologies

The National Institute of Health Research (NIHR) has announced a new funding call to support digital technologies that aim to improve health and care.

The purpose of this call is to evaluate existing digital technologies and their potential to bring benefit to health and social care.

Applicants should be able to justify the importance of their proposed research and identify how the work supports aspirations to improve health outcomes, enable individuals to better manage their own health, extend or support the roles of health and social care staff, improve the delivery of health and social care services or reduce health inequalities. Consideration must also be given to timely delivery and future relevance of findings and the effect of digital technologies on health inequalities.

There are two deadlines for stage 1 applications: 6 November 2018 and 19 March 2019. Applicants can choose the call deadline which allows them to fully build their team and develop their research proposal.
