NHS Next Generation Home Vision Testing

Apply for a share of £100,000 to develop remotely deployed vision testing.

What's the open innovation challenge?

This SBRI competition funded by NHS Scotland is seeking pioneering solutions for remote vision testing.

Successful applicants will receive 100% funding and have access to advice from NHS Forth Valley, NHS Ayrshire and Arran, NHS Fife and NHS Grampian.

This call is for proposals for phase 1 of a potential two-phased competition.

A total of £40,000 has been allocated for phase 1 to demonstrate the technical feasibility of the proposed solutions. Phase 1 contracts will be up to £10,000 (inc. VAT) for up to 3 months.

The decision to proceed with phase 2 will depend on the outcomes from phase 1 and assessment of a separate application for a subsequent phase 2 competition. Only successful applicants from phase 1 will be eligible to participate in phase 2.

Phase 2 will involve up to two contracts of up to £30,000 (inc. VAT) for up to 9 months. These will be to develop a prototype and undertake field testing.
