The Artificial Intelligence Health and Care Award supports innovators and technologies across the spectrum of development of artificial intelligence (AI) technology, from concept through to initial NHS adoption and testing of the technology within clinical pathways.
Phase 1 – Feasibility
Phase 2 – Development & Clinical Evaluation
Phase 3 – Real World Testing
Phase 4 – Initial Health System Adoption
Phases 1-3 of the AI Award aim to create a pipeline of products, interventions and services which are ready for wider testing and will be delivered through the well-established and robust mechanisms underpinning the i4i and SBRI Healthcare programmes, with an indicative budget of £2-7m in the first year. This early stage pipeline will be managed by the NIHR Invention for Innovation and Small Business Research Initiative (SBRI) Healthcare Programme Management Office, in close collaboration with the Accelerated Access Collaborative Delivery Team.
Phases 1-3 are 2 stage processes. For Stage 1, applicants should complete a brief expression of interest form. A template of this form can be found on the right hand side, but applications must be completed and submitted through the Research Management System.
Through the Phase 4 AI Award the Accelerated Access Collaborative Delivery Team will facilitate initial systems adoption of the AI technologies into the NHS and/or social care setting, with an indicative Phase 4 budget of £5-10m in the first year.
Phase 4 is a single stage processes. A template of the application form can be found on the right hand side, but applications must be completed and submitted through the Research Management System.
