Funding news

The Innovate UK KTN (KTN) Innovation Exchange Programme is supporting the UK National Innovation Centre for Ageing (NICA) with Oxford Innovation Advice (OIA) to find innovative UK companies who are ambitious to grow their business. We seek innovators with new product or service ideas that can support us to stay healthy connected and active as we age. We will be providing free expert assistance to participants particularly focussing on the growing market opportunities in China.

The theme of this accelerator is ‘adaptations to the urban environment’ and we are looking for technologies, products and services that help to ensure our towns and cities actively support our healthy longevity and quality of life.

The free-of-charge UK-China Healthy Ageing Accelerator is targeted at high-growth potential companies of any size and from any part of the UK. It will provide expert support to help companies to maximise their business growth including assisting participants to explore the fast-growing China Market. Successful applicants will benefit from 9 weeks of tailored fully funded support from NICA, OIA, and KTN experts. The first week of the programme will require full-time “in person” participation in Newcastle upon Tyne. We are now recruiting the third group of ten participants. The earlier groups are currently undertaking the programme and deriving significant benefit.

These activities are funded through the UK Research and Innovation (UKRI) Fund for International Collaboration (FIC), delivered by Innovate UK, part of UKRI.

The healthy longevity market is one of the fastest-growing markets in the world. The market in China is the largest geographically-defined opportunity for this. Our Accelerator Programme includes a de-risking pathway to enter this (China) market and make UK businesses competitive as well as growth and export-ready.
