The aim of this competition is to stimulate innovation in H&LS. Projects must align with at least one of the following Innovate UK priority areas:

increase yield, quality and sustainability in agriculture and food production
advanced therapies (cell and gene therapies), precision medicine, medicines discovery or preclinical technologies
advanced bioscience techniques and capabilities that have the potential to improve healthcare and/or agriculture and food production in the future
We will fund business led projects that connect with the themes of the H&LS sector. An example would be innovation in health and life sciences leading to increased agri-food productivity, quality and sustainability and improved healthcare outcomes.

We will fund a range of projects that address the technical or commercial challenges across the Innovate UK priority areas listed above. These challenges should lead towards increased business productivity, competitiveness and growth, especially of SMEs. Your project may focus on technical feasibility, industrial research or experimental development depending on the challenge identified.
