How can your early-stage innovative technology solution solve the world’s most pressing social and environmental problems?




Globally, it is estimated that there are nearly 1B people with an Acquired Brain Injury (ABI), dementia or are an informal caregiver for someone who does. In the UK, ABI and dementia cost the economy £68B annually. These conditions cause severe and permanent physical, cognitive, behavioural and mental health problems and have profound effects not only on individuals, but their families, communities and society as a whole. Given our ageing society and new need for remote care, there is an urgent requirement for innovative technology.
