EPSRC Call for Participants in a three-day Sandpit focused on Digital Technologies for Health and Care

  Monday, 04 May 2020 | Funding Deadline

UKRI are pleased to invite participants to apply to attend a sandpit on digital technologies for improved self-monitoring and health management. Successful projects from the sandpit should either have a new approach to self-monitoring of conditions (especially conditions which are harder to manage and where there are fewer tools available for interventions) or that seek to identify novel digital technologies that will ultimately enable the public to better manage their health in their own homes and in the community.

The concept of the sandpit is an interactive workshop on a topic, involving 25-30 participants. The sandpit will run over three days starting mid-morning on Tuesday 30 June 2020 and finishing mid-afternoon on Thursday 02 July 2020.

It is expected that up to £1.2 million of UKRI funding will be made available to fund research projects arising from this sandpit. Each project funded is expected to be in the region of £400,000.
