The aim of this competition is to develop digital therapeutic XR solutions that may be applied and trialled following a two-year R&D cycle, with the potential to be adopted at scale to form part of the UK’s formal mental healthcare ecosystem.

Projects will undertake research and development in the application of Extended Reality (XR) to provide mental health care solutions for young people and older adults.

XR refers to Extended Reality and covers Augmented Reality (AR), Mixed Reality (MR) and Virtual Reality (VR), haptics, interfaces, platforms and software. These are often referred to collectively as immersive technologies

Project applications can be made across two R&D streams: feasibility studies and industrial research. Proposals must include the design and features of your solution and how it will be applied. Award sizes will be between £50,000 and £250,000.

This competition opens on 2nd September 2022 and closes on 12 October 2022.
