You may design technologies for use in clinical or non-clinical everyday settings.

An SME must lead the project. Feasibility projects can be from an SME working alone or in collaboration.

Industrial research and experimental development projects must be collaborative and work with at least one other grant-claiming partner (NHS, other healthcare providers, other businesses, Catapults such as the Digital Catapult or other research technology organisation, research base or third sector). We recommend that you collaborate with the NHS on any industrial research or experimental development project where appropriate.

You must show how your project will improve the competitiveness and productivity for at least one UK SME involved in the project.
