The Artificial Intelligence Health and Care Award supports solutions addressing the strategic aims of the NHS Long Term Plan across the whole development pathway, from initial feasibility to clinical implementation.


Scope

This fund will support AI technologies across the spectrum of development, from initial feasibility to evaluation within clinical pathways in the NHS and social care settings, to the point that they could be nationally commissioned.

Key areas of focus include screening, diagnosis, decision support and system efficiency. Projects may focus on standalone software or medical devices or in vitro diagnostic devices with embedded AI, which require further training using clinically meaningful datasets.

Fundable activities include, but are not limited to:

  • Research and development to demonstrate feasibility and/or produce prototypes or minimum viable products
  • Acquisition of big data through technology development or by acquiring existing clinical datasets for the purpose of training the technology
  • Research and development activities relating to training of the algorithm, including cleaning and annotating new data
  • Assessments to determine user requirements
  • Feasibility studies to evaluate the technology’s fit for the proposed problem
  • Research to support regulatory approval strategy and to satisfy the requirements for pre-clinical evidence generation and its documentation
  • Activities in relation to intellectual property protection, freedom to operate and market/competitor analysis or business case development, including plans for commercialisation and NHS adoption
  • Research to support patient and public engagement or involvement
  • Identification of relevant stakeholders and/or partners to support the next stages in the development

Applications may be submitted by an SME, NHS Trust or service provider, or by a Higher Education Institution. Collaboration not required at phase 1 but is encouraged.

Project Size

Phase 1: Product and clinical feasibility - up to £150,000
