SBRI: Overdose detection, response and intervention demonstration
OLS and SHIP are investing up to £5 million inclusive of VAT across the two competitions. Their purpose is to develop disruptive, innovative solutions that focus on detecting, responding to, and intervening in, early acute risk of non-fatal and fatal overdose.
This strand is for projects with technology already at an advanced stage of development, and near ready to be deployed in a real-world environment. The other strand is SBRI: Overdose detection, response and intervention feasibility.
This is a single-phase competition.
This competition aims to speed up and improve the detection of, response to and intervention in potentially fatal overdoses using innovative digital technologies and therapeutic solutions.
Projects can focus on one or more of the following priorities:
This list is not intended to be exhaustive.
The potential innovative mechanisms and technologies you can use, include but are not limited to:
Innovate UK encourage proposals that bring together sector specialists and include a co-design and co-production element with the expertise of people:
Innovate UK will give preference to proposals that demonstrate how innovative solutions can be formally accepted for use across the 4 UK health systems. For example, through obtaining necessary regulatory compliance and approvals.
Your project can focus on one or more of the following themes:
As part of your application, you must engage with a suitable research and innovation partner to serve as a ‘test bed’. The test bed research partner is required to develop your proposed solution, gain relevant clinical and non-clinical advice and to determine the extent of required work within the test bed.
Suitable test bed research partners could include the NHS Scotland Regional Test Beds, or equivalents located in England, Wales or Northern Ireland, for example:
You can also propose any other suitable UK based alternative.
To lead a project, you can:
