Research funding pot for improving mental health​​
02 November 2017
The Small Business Research Initiative (SBRI) Healthcare competition is seeking proposals in three mental health categories:
  • Children and Young People’s Mental Health
  • Depression, self-harm and suicide 
  • New Models of Care (leading to improvements in operational productivity)
 
The competition is open to single companies or organisations from the private, public and third sectors, including charities. The competition will run in two phases:
• Phase 1 is intended to show the technical feasibility of the proposed concept. The development contracts placed will be for a maximum of 6 months and up to £100,000 (inc. VAT) per project
• Phase 2 contracts are intended to develop and evaluate prototypes or demonstration units from the more promising technologies in Phase 1. Only those projects that have completed Phase 1 successfully will be eligible for Phase 2.
 
Developments will be 100% funded and suppliers for each project will be selected by an open competition process and retain the intellectual property rights (IPR) generated from the project, with certain rights of use retained by the NHS.
 
The deadline for applications is 1200hrs on Wednesday 29th November 2017.
