SBRI Healthcare, an Accelerated Access Collaborative initiative, in partnership with the Health Innovation Network and Stroke Association, is delighted to announce a new funding competition.

SBRI Healthcare Competition 26 Phase 3 is aimed at late-stage innovations with the aim to facilitate the collection of evidence in real-world settings, and build on the value proposition required by commissioners and regulators to accelerate the uptake of innovations into health and social care settings.

And in consultation with the James Lind Alliance Stroke Priority Setting Partnership for Stroke Research, clinicians and stakeholders, innovations in Stroke are sought that focus on:

  1. Early diagnosis

  2. Rehabilitation

  3. Life after stroke.
