The Healthy Ageing Social Ventures Feasibility Studies strand will fund projects with costs up to £50,000 and a maximum duration of 12 months. Your project must start by 1 March 2022 and complete by 28 February 2023, and must demonstrate a strong social impact, focus or purpose.

You must have clearly identified an existing lead customer for your innovation and identify a clear route to market.

This is phase 1 of a two-phase SBRI competition. A decision to proceed with phase 2 will depend on the outcomes of phase 1 and availability of further funding, and will require a separate application.
