EPSRC - Healthcare Technologies Grand Challenges

The Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC) is in the process of identifying a number of 'Grand Challenges' in Healthcare Technologies.

Grand Challenges are significant problems that need to be addressed via a long-term, multidisciplinary approach from researchers.

To develop the challenges the EPSRC has launched a set of web surveys to collect views from across the community on a shortlist of 10 possible topics. They are:

  • Data analytics and digital infrastructure for healthcare;
  • Enabling technologies for regenerative medicine;
  • Engineering healthy behaviours;
  • Functional enhancement for safe and independent living;
  • Infection prevention and control;
  • Patient specific treatment;
  • Prediction and early diagnosis;
  • Smart surgeries and therapies;
  • Systems to support and improve healthcare provision;
  • Understanding and interventions in neurological function.

The deadline for responses is Tuesday 10 June.
