Research for Health Challenges 2017

Selected Challenges for 2017

We have already engaged with healthcare workers, patients, the public, managers & commissioners to collect information about problems they encounter that could potentially be solved via innovative research at University of Bristol. We have selected 12 of these challenges to form the basis of the stage 2 funding call for solutions. University of Bristol researchers can apply for up to £25k funding from the EBI to enable them to work with the person who put the challenge forward and start to develop innovative solutions.

The selected challenges are outlined below. You will find further information about each challenge in the attached documents.

The call for applications is now closed. For further information or to register your interest in this scheme please contact Sarah Blackmore ebi-health@bristol.ac.uk
