Nesta is looking for ideas to help shape health and care data innovation fund

Posted by Sandra Hogg on 5th August 2019

Nesta is partnering with the Scottish Government on a innovation fund to be launched in mid October to explore:

1.    How to increase trust amongst citizens in how health and care data is used and ensure that the system is trustworthy and transparent.

2.    How to increase and unlock the value of data, especially that sits outside the health and care, for everyone.

They would love to hear about projects that you might be working on, or are interested in working on, that are addressing these issues, for example:

  • Data education and ethics
  • New types of data e.g. synthetic data
  • Putting citizens in control e.g. Personal data stores
  • New models of consent 
  • Data stewardship models e.g. data trusts, data commons etc
  • Unlocking the value of health data for all

If you think you can help shape this programme, or want to discuss whether your project might be suitable for the fund, please contact
