Develop research ideas for novel digital technologies to monitor, diagnose and treat the population remotely. You can be from any research area. You must be eligible for EPSRC research grant funding. The first stage of the process is a ‘sandpit’ event. In this three-day online event you will work with other researchers to develop ideas for proposals. During the event, we’ll be looking for projects that:
reduce the time that the public spends engaged with the traditional healthcare delivery system;
improve health outcomes;
enable better community-based or home-based healthcare delivery.
This sandpit will include inputs from a variety of sources, bringing together: social scientists, designers, engineers, physical scientists, computer scientists, healthcare professionals, biological scientists and innovators. They will address the research challenges associated with developing novel digital technologies to monitor, diagnose and treat the population remotely. Standard EPSRC eligibility rules apply. Research grants are open to:
UK higher education institutions;
research council institutes;
UKRI-approved independent research organisations;
NHS bodies with research capacity;
public sector research establishments (PSREs).
Please note that businesses are not eligible to apply for funding through this scheme.
Please be advised attendance for the full three days is mandatory. This is the second sandpit, in a series of three. The theme for this sandpit is novel digital technologies to monitor, diagnose and treat the population remotely. The sandpit will be held virtually over three days in the second half of October 2021.The deadline for submission of full proposals is expected to be in November 2021 (date to be confirmed). Final funding decisions will be made in January 2022.
Call for Events is now open! We're supporting Members and Expert Fellows to lead activities that explore aspects of TIPS in the Digital Economy. We will help to organise the activity with up to £5,000 to cover the associated costs.
