Support for COVID-19 related health projects in areas such as smart living and self-care technologies. CHIC delivers business-led research to accelerate the commercialisation of emerging technologies.
CHIC delivers business-led research to accelerate the commercialisation of emerging technologies through a cluster of health technology companies. We engage companies delivering health, as their insight is valuable in shaping the user requirements of health technology. Research is broad to allow the work to identify areas of impact and view where there is appetite from the companies.
CHIC can offer support for COVID-19 related projects within project funding arrangements of 'pre-project' (limited amount of work over short period of time) and 'full collaborative project' (up to £250,000 and 18 months - membership required, funds expended in academic research, company in-kind contribution required).
Research themes are:
(1) Health where we live (Smart Living) (2) Point of care and self-care technologies (Medical Sensors & Diagnostics) (3) Cross cutting themes of connectivity, analytics, AI (ML) and Living Lab.
