WORLD LEADING BUSINESS SUPPORT

One Health Campaign

Supporting the health of our planet and its population

Applications Now Open

The health our planet, and all that live on it, is complex and interconnected.

Issues such as climate change, mass extinction of animal populations, antimicrobial resistance and poor water and soil quality are all impacting on our food quality and supply which in turn will impact on the health of humans, animals and the environment. By 2050, the UN (FAO) report that we will need to produce 50% more food globally to feed the growing population and the livestock that we eat.

One Health is globally understood as the umbrella term for the interconnectivity of human, animal and environmental health.

In recognition of this huge challenge, SETsquared’s Scale-Up Programme will invest £100k+ into R&D project proposal development for a number of open and themed One Health funds. We therefore invite academics (from the universities of Bath, Bristol, Cardiff, Exeter, Southampton and Surrey), companies and consortia, including companies and academics, to apply for funding of up to £35k per project to help develop collaborative R&D proposals bids. Please see the Innovate UK Good Application Guide for further advice.
