Supporting Information

The NIHR Invention for Innovation (i4i) programme invites proposals to Call 11 of its researcher-led Challenge Awards, which this year are on the topic of Real World Implementation (RWI).

The RWI Challenge Award will fund investigations of medtech innovations in healthcare settings. The aim is to shorten the evidence gap between the safety/efficacy typical of a newly or nearly CE marked technology and what is required for decisions by commissioners and regulators. At the same time, this will de-risk the product for follow-on investment.

In this competition, we are partnering with ESPRC, Asthma UK and the British Lung Foundation to highlight our support for the development and adoption of asthma health technologies.

The deadline for this call is on 12 January 2021 (13:00 GMT).

We will be running a webinar on 11 November 2020. This will be an excellent opportunity to learn about Real World Implementation and to find out more details about the eligibility and assessment criteria for the Challenge call. You will also be able to ask questions during the live Q&A session.
