AI Award funding for innovations in social care

This webinar is for innovators in AI, who have technologies that are aimed at providing solutions in social care, and who are interested in applying to the Artificial Intelligence in Health and Care Award.

The third competition for artificial intelligence technologies to receive funding through the AI Award is open until 7 September 2021. Find out more about the Award, how to apply and the selection process, and discuss how AI can help meet people’s care needs.



The Award is open to technology companies, researchers and developers, to apply for help to develop and test AI products. The Award is keen to hear from AI innovators in social care, who have technologies that can benefit people in residential care or with their care at home, or care providers with the delivery of social care.

The webinar will include examples of how AI is already being used to improve care, and there will be a Q&A session.
