Industrial Challenge Healthy Ageing Grand Challenge

Posted on 25 June 2019 (Permalink)

The Government has set out an ambitious mission for the Ageing Society Grand Challenge: for people to enjoy five more years of healthy, independent living by 2035 while narrowing the gap between the experience of the richest and the poorest.

£98 million has been committed to help deliver this ambition and the intention from InnovateUK is to launch competitions later in the year.

A recent survey on how best to structure the programme has received 140 submissions which has demonstrated appetite to develop services and products for a healthy ageing population.
