Healthier Lives Data Fund: Demo Evening
February 27 @ 4:30 pm - 8:00 pm
On the 27th of February, Nesta and the Scottish Government are hosting a demo evening to mark the end of the Healthier Lives Data Fund, a programme which, for the last year, has supported six innovative digital health technologies with £30,000 each of funding and additional support to develop their ideas, products and business plans.
The projects range from artificial intelligence predicting exacerbations of COPD, to helping carers of people living with dementia to access support. What they have in common is their passion for designing with people (rather than for them) and their innovative use of data helping their users lead healthier and more independent lives.
The evening will start with drinks and networking before we hear from Nesta and the Scottish Government about programme and the partnership. Each project will then be given the opportunity to pitch for a further £120,000 of additional funding to our judges.
Bowl food and a selection of alcoholic and nonalcoholic drinks will be provided and there will be opportunities for networking while the judges deliberate.
At the end of the event, two of the projects will be awarded a further £60,000 worth of funding to continue their projects.
