Innovate UK Launches £8 Million Digital Health Technology Catalyst Programme

Go Back To All News

Innovate UK has just launched round 1 of the digital health technology catalyst programme. 

An £8 million funding pot to speed up development of new digital technology healthcare solutions.

Projects must focus on the development of digital health or digitally-enabled medical technologies. They must have the potential to achieve one or more of the following:

  • improve patient outcomes
  • transform healthcare delivery
  • enable more efficient delivery of healthcare

The good news is that Innovate UK grant funding is non-repayable, and they do not take any equity, IP or commercial rights over your project.  The bad news is that Innovate UK grants are highly competitive which is not surprising as this in effect is ‘free’ cash.                

Key Information:

Projects must speed up the development of new digital technology solutions to the healthcare challenges outlined in the scope.
