Catch the last 5k #CATCHvoucher
The University’s Centre for Assistive Technology and Connected Healthcare (CATCH) is offering its last £5,000 Innovation Voucher. The funding scheme was launched in spring 2016 to help launch new ventures which aim to improve people’s lives through technology.
The first innovation voucher was won by Gospelware at the Digital Health Design Challenge, which took place at the Digital Media Centre (DMC) in Barnsley. They were working with a team from the multiple sclerosis charity Shift.ms and a consultant neurologist and specialist nurse from Sheffield Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust, created an app to help people with MS to monitor and manage fatigue issues.
Voucher two, three and four will be given to companies working with new technology in mental health, new tech sleep research and novel applications of speech technology.
The University of Sheffield now offers a last business the chance to turn their innovative idea into reality.
“Our vision is to transform the ways in which people are enabled to live well through the application of ubiquitous and personalised technology,”
Deadline for the last innovation voucher is 21/10/2016.
