SBRI Innovation competition on drug overdose detection, response and intervention
Reducing fatal overdose using drug overdose detection, response and intervention technology
The UK Office for Life Sciences (OLS) and the Scottish Health Industry Partnership (SHIP), part of the Scottish Government Chief Scientist Office, are funding an innovation competition to develop disruptive innovative solutions that focus on detection of, response to and intervention in overdose episodes.
The competition is also being run in close consultation with the Welsh Government and Northern Ireland Executive to ensure the patient testing data gathered on innovative products is relevant for regulation and deployment across all four nations.
This open innovation challenge call specifically provides an opportunity for companies, working in partnership with test bed research partners across the UK to develop disruptive innovative solutions that focus on detecting, responding to and intervening in early acute risk of non-fatal and fatal overdose episodes.
The competition briefs and application forms with full details are now available on Innovate UK:
