The competition is live, with registration closing on the 23rd September 1100am and the competition closing on the 30th September 1100am

This is a Small Business Research Initiative (SBRI) competition funded by NHS Scotland. Successful applicants receive 100% funding and access to advice from NHS Highland, NHS Lothian and NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde.

The overall programme will be delivered in up to 2 phases. This is phase 1. A decision to proceed with phase 2 will depend on the outcomes from phase 1. Only successful applicants from phase 1 will be able to apply to take part in phase 2.

NHS Scotland is investing up to £300,000 including VAT, in innovative solutions in 3 challenge areas as follows:

Challenge A

Using artificial intelligence and machine learning to help develop prediction algorithms and risk stratification for diabetes foot ulceration, amputations and mortality.

Challenge B

Improving the clinical care of patients with a pre-existing diagnosis of diabetes when admitted to hospital by developing a real-time decision support tool and alert mechanism. The tool must improve triage, prevent medication errors, identify emergencies and streamline the diabetes care pathway.

Challenge C

Improving the identification (case finding) of people at risk of osteoporosis and fracture, including those with diabetes.

You need to submit a separate application for each challenge you wish to apply for.
