The Healthcare Technologies theme has recently published the latest version of the Healthcare Technologies impact and translation toolkit. The toolkit is intended to provide an accessible overview of some of the key barriers researchers may face when seeking to apply their research to solving or addressing challenges in human health and wellbeing.
In addition to outlining some of the key issues confronting researchers, the latest version also provides a number of useful suggestions for questions researchers may wish to consider when developing a proposal, resources they may wish to request from EPSRC and a number of useful links to other tools and resources. It is expected that all applicants to EPSRC Healthcare Technologies programmes will demonstrate an understanding of the toolkit content, but we hope the information may be useful for researchers new to health research more broadly.
The toolkit can be found here.
