New competition open, SBRI Competition 22 – Delivering a Net Zero NHS: Clinical Innovation

24 August 2022

SBRI Healthcare is delighted to announce that applications for our second net zero funding competition are now open

Delivering a Net Zero NHS: Clinical Innovation, funded by the Accelerated Access Collaborative, and in partnership with Greener NHS and the AHSN Network, seeks innovative solutions that will directly impact reductions in the carbon footprint of the NHS.

Since 2010, the NHS has reduced emissions by 30%, but more transformation that maintains quality of patient care is required in every setting. Developing technologies and investing in innovation now will accelerate action and ensure the best outcomes for patients.

The Delivering a Net Zero NHS: Clinical Innovation Competition is open for innovations that can help transform carbon intensive areas of clinical care and complex care pathways, to help the NHS meet its net zero ambitions and improve patient care. Specifically, the four challenge areas include:

– Decarbonising surgical pathways

– Reducing waste in surgery and critical care

– Net zero personalised care

– Tools to support the workforce to deliver net zero care

The deadline for applications is 5 October 2022

The SBRI Healthcare PMO and the Greener NHS team will host an a live Q&A session on
8 September 2022 June at 14:00
