The Dare to Solve: Health and Social Care Innovation Contest will offer businesses the opportunity to develop and trial new innovations which use digital technology and data to improve how public services are planned, delivered and experienced by citizens.
Through addressing one of the contest’s two challenges, themed around health and wellbeing and social care, successful companies will have the opportunity to trial their proposed solution with the contest’s leading challenge partner, Staffordshire County Council, to accelerate development of their technologies.
We want to see solutions with potential appeal to a wide commercial market. Successful applicants will be expected to trial their proposed solutions with the contest partner for at least 3 months.
The contest consists of a two-stage competitive procurement process leading to the trial of innovative solutions. The first stage is an application form and the second stage is a pitching session.
The Dare to Solve: Health and Social Care Innovation Contest is running as part of a Staffordshire-based Innovate UK-funded project, and in partnership with the Digital KILN, a new Staffordshire University-led programme working with large companies, small businesses, public sector organisations, entrepreneurs and citizens to develop and deploy new digital technologies.
