The Digital Health Technology Catalyst (DHTC) is a £35 million fund, being run over 4 years. It is part of the Industrial Strategy Challenge Fund.

The DHTC is a core element of the government’s plans to implement the Accelerated Access Review (AAR). It aims to address some of the challenges that the review identified around the development of digital health innovations, and to help grow the digital health sector.

Innovate UK, as part of UK Research and Innovation, is to invest up to £1 million in feasibility studies that can potentially develop new digital technology solutions to healthcare challenges. We are running another competition in parallel focusing on industrial research and development.

You must show how your project will improve the competitiveness and productivity of at least one UK SME involved in the project. SMEs can work alone or in collaboration.
