Enabling Integrated Diagnostics for Early Detection Competition

Tuesday, 03 September 2019

 IUK Enabling Integrated Diagnostics for Early Detection Competition.

Up to £20 million is available for multidisciplinary consortia to develop and evaluate integrated diagnostic solutions for early detection and diagnosis.

Through this competition, Innovate UK (IUK) aims to accelerate the development of innovative diagnostic tools and technologies for early detection and diagnosis of diseases, undertaken by multi-disciplinary and cross-sector consortia. The aim is to maximise the UK’s potential to diagnose diseases earlier, identify the best therapeutic intervention for patients, and ultimately enable a new wave of treatment regimens to emerge.

These new regimes will be based on a better understanding of disease processes and improved diagnostic capabilities. The programme also seeks to improve efficiency in the NHS and improve patient outcomes.

Projects can focus on early development of new modality combinations (such as the combination of imaging and genomic information with new algorithms) and their detection technologies, to later stage refinement of more established tools. However, even in earlier stage development, applicants must consider how their proposed solution could be used in clinical practice and be integrated into NHS care pathways.

IUK will invest up to £17 million in the research, development and evaluation of integrated diagnostic solutions. An additional investment of up to £3 million is available for oncology-focused projects from Cancer Research UK.

The maximum grant a consortium can apply for is £3.5 million. The total eligible project costs for each consortium, including industry contributions and any other co-funding, must not exceed £10 million.

To lead a project, the applicant can be a UK-registered business of any size, research and technology organisation, academic institution, hospital or NHS/NIHR organisation. Applicants must collaborate with other organisations and IUK encourages the involvement of more than one business.

The competition is now open with a closing date for applications of midday on 23 September 2019.

More information about the programme is available on WWW.GOV.UK
