Industrial Strategy Challenge Fund

A new fund (The Industrial Strategy Challenge Fund) to support UK Industry will be announced this year.  Current details are at  https://www.gov.uk/government/news/first-industrial-strategy-challenge-fund-engagement-begins.  

Consultation events organised by RCUK and Innovate UK have generated a long list of potential areas of funding.  Included is  “INFORMATICS & DIGITAL HEALTH - Create digital technologies to transform the delivery of health care and management of population health, and to make the UK a leading test-bed for new health care systems and self-management”. 

You might at this stage wish to explore with Industry Partners whether there are areas which could form an application for funding if “Informatics and Digital Health” should be included in the call. 

Please contact Martin Cox, Head of FMS Enterprise/Assistant Director of RES using martin.cox@ncl.ac.uk, if you would like to discuss this further.
