UKRI and Innovate UK are looking to secure a partner to build and deliver a programme of Innovation Support for Mindset and the Clinical Mental Health & Wellbeing sector, working with NIHR Mindtech, Innovate UK KTN and other partners to bring businesses, NHS providers, regulatory and academic partners together to share knowledge and provide guidance on how to access the market and stay there.

The Innovation Support provider will also be responsible for supporting Mindset R&D applicants and award recipients to address gaps in their knowledge and capability through a balance of general support and active, market-focused interventions.

A broad range of expertise and skills will be required for successful programme delivery. This event is to facilitate collaboration between partners who collectively could deliver the programme.

Participants are invited to present their capabilities and 1:1 network with other attendees.

The vision for the £20M Mindset XR investment is to achieve a post Covid transformation of UK Mental Health provision by supporting the development and scale-up of emerging digital therapies. This will be realised by catalysing collaboration between healthcare and creative sectors to develop an innovation sector with global potential, and to provide urgently needed new immersive digital (XR) delivery models for Mental Health services and trials. XR refers to Extended Reality and covers Augmented Reality (AR), Mixed Reality (MR) and Virtual Reality (VR), haptics, interfaces, platforms, and software, often be referred to as immersive technologies.
