Healthy Ageing Challenge – Designed for Ageing

Closing Date: 17/11/2021

UK registered businesses can lead applications for funding to support service-led innovations to support healthy ageing.

This competition is administered by Innovate UK (IUK); the UK’s innovation agency. IUK works with people, companies and partner organisations to de-risk, enable and support innovation, and promote UK economic growth. IUK is part of UK Research and Innovation (UKRI) – a non-departmental public body, funded by a grant-in-aid from the UK government through the Department for Business, Energy & Industrial Strategy (BEIS).

The Healthy Ageing Challenge is supported by the Centre for Ageing Better’s Community of Practice.

Through Innovate UK (IUK), the Healthy Ageing Challenge is funding service-led innovation projects designed to support healthy ageing. These projects should deliver a clear game-changing service-led innovation to help people as they age, positively, actively, independently and with dignity.

The aims of this competition are to:

  • Address the under-provision of products and services which support people as they age to remain active, independent and socially connected.
  • Support business-led, near-to-market innovations that have potential to scale.
  • Enforce good people-centred design principles.
  • Encourage applications from businesses across the UK, by working with devolved government administrations in Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland.
