STFC CLASP 2014 Healthcare

Launch Event 20th May 2014

STFC Innovations Club is pleased to announce that the launch event for our new £1.5m Challenge Led Applied Systems Programme (CLASP) Healthcare funding call will be held on 20th May 2014.

Healthcare is one of four key themes under the STFC Futures Programme and there are many technologies arising from across the STFC research base that have the potential to solve technical challenges faced by the healthcare community.

Outline applications for the funding call must be received by early September for projects starting from April 2015.

The main purpose of the day is to enable delegates to discover more about the programme, to hear from agencies driving the healthcare agenda and to meet with researchers from the STFC community as well as companies and users engaged in developing solutions to tackle healthcare challenges. There will also be networking opportunities for potential applicants to meet and share ideas with potential project partners.

The priority challenge areas set by the healthcare community cover:

  • Radioisotopes
  • Imaging technology
  • Medical Informatics
  • Early Diagnosis

Please register for this event which is being held at the Royal College of Physicians, London, NW1 4LE, from 10:00 – 16:00.
