Asthma UK is inviting applications for its 2018 Project Grants which will support research focused on developing tools for quick, accurate, scalable and low-cost diagnostics in asthma.
The grants are being launched with co-founder Innovate UK, which supports businesses to develop and commercialise new products.
Research can be focused at any stage of the innovation pathway, however, a clear pathway to adoption or commercialisation must be articulated (including estimated timescales). Any collaboration with partners who can drive research outputs to adoption/commercialisation must be evidenced, and projects which are likely to achieve impact for people with asthma in the short to medium term (5-10 years) will be prioritised.
The awards will be worth between £50,000 and £250,000 and will be available for up to three years. The deadline for submitting applications is 1pm on 27 March 2018.
Asthma UK has also launched a report, “Asthma Diagnostics: A 21st Century Challenge”, which identifies key research and policy solutions to meet the challenge of asthma diagnosis.
