NIHR Devices for Dignity (at Sheffield Teaching Hospitals NHS FT) and Trustech (at Manchester University NHS FT) are collaborating in a project, AntiSuperbugs, that is making up to €4M available to enable the development of technologies that detect and alert people to the presence of antimicrobial resistant organisms in healthcare settings. If your organisation is interested in bidding for funds as part of a 3 phase approach to developing and trialling technology to address this significant healthcare need, please get in touch with with us here.
More information is available through the AntiSuperbugs project website, here.
As part of this funding competition we are holding an Open Market Consultation on 18 January 2018 at the Infection Prevention and Control Conference in Salford, UK. You can register for the event here.
Attendance at the OMC is not a pre-requisite for applying for funding; you can also get directly in touch with D4D/Trustech to discuss the competition. OMCs are also taking place elsewhere across Europe – please see the project website for details.
