Find Healthy Ageing Competition Consortium Partners
Posted on 18/10/2019
The Industrial Strategy Challenge Fund (ISCF) Healthy Ageing Trailblazers Stage 1 competition is now open. Innovate UK, part of UK Research and Innovation, is to invest up to £2 million in stage 1 of this competition which aims to encourage businesses and public sector led collaborations, including social enterprises, to develop and demonstrate how products, services and business models which support people as they age will be adopted at scale. The competition closes on 27th November.
A portfolio of projects across the 7 themes drawn from the Healthy Ageing Challenge Framework will be funded through the Trailblazers competition. There is a particular interest in projects whose principal focus covers one or more of the first 3 of these 7 themes:
- Sustaining physical activity
- Maintaining health at work
- Designing for age-friendly homes
- Managing common complaints of ageing
- Living well with cognitive impairment
- Supporting social connections
- Creating healthy and active places
Given that the topic is multi-disciplinary, applicants are looking for collaborators. You can use our Healthy Ageing collaboration tool to find consortia partners for the Healthy Ageing competitions.
