Thank you for your interest in working with NIHR Children and Young People MedTech Co-operative (NIHR CYP MedTech).

Please contact us about:

  • Unmet needs i.e. things which make day-to-day living difficult for children and young people with long-term health conditions or a problem in a health care setting that does not currently have a solution. You do not need to know how to solve the problem; and
  • Innovations in response to unmet needs. We focus on early stage technology development (Technology Readiness Levels 1 – 3) but will consider technology at later stages on a case by case basis.

Unmet needs and innovations must relate to children and young people with long-term health conditions.

Unmet needs and innovations must fit within one or more of our seven themes:

  • Cancer
  • Respiratory and Sleep
  • Rare Diseases
  • Epilepsy, Movement, and Muscle Disorders
  • Neonatal Technologies
  • Surgical Technologies
  • Transition
