The North East Cluster for Healthy Ageing and Independent Living (NE-CHAIN) has won early-stage funding from UK Research and Innovation to cultivate the ageing market in Newcastle and the North East.
NE-CHAIN will bring together community and volunteer groups, the NHS, care providers and Universities with businesses to develop and prepare a larger bid for the UK Research and Innovation’s Strength in Places Fund.
It is one of 24 ambitious projects across the country, from pharmaceuticals to aerospace, and transport to the creative economy that UK Research and Innovation have announced are to receive up to £50K of early-stage funding to develop full-stage bids that could lead to significant economic growth.
The team behind the project will submit this bid to UK Research and Innovation in late 2019, with four to eight of the strongest set to receive between £10m and £50m each to carry out projects designed to drive substantial economic growth.
