The NHS Innovation Accelerator (NIA) is a NHS England initiative, delivered in partnership with the 15 Academic Health Science Networks (AHSNs).
This NIA Call will select up to 12 Fellows with evidence-based innovations that are ready to scale for patient, population and NHS benefit. The NIA is open to all types of innovation (including digital, medtech, workforce and models of care) and welcomes applicants across a range of professional backgrounds.
A Q&A webinar will take place on 22 September (14:00-15:00 BST).
Deadline for proposals
All applications must be submitted through the NIA application portal by the deadline of 16 October 2020 (23:59).
Applicants, nationally and internationally, can be clinicians; academics; from a public-sector, charitable or not-for-profit organisation; from a small or medium-sized enterprise (SME); or from a large corporate.
The Call has aligned with the current NHS priorities of COVID-19 Reset and Recovery. As such, applications must address at least one of the following themes:
- The NHS Response to COVID-19.
- Mental Health.
- The NHS Workforce.
Fellows will have access to a bursary of up to £20,000 that can be used to support the scaling of the innovation and for travel and subsistence for participation at NIA events.
