The NIHR has launched a new funding call: Artificial Intelligence for Multiple Long-Term Conditions (AIM), which will spearhead the use of advanced data science and AI methods, combined with existing methodology and expertise in clinical practice, applied health and care research and social science, to systematically identify or explore clusters of disease and trajectories to develop insights for the prevention, identification, management and treatment of multiple long-term conditions (multimorbidity) or MLTC-M.
The call is organised into two main funding streams:
1. Research Collaborations: up to £2.5m is available for Research Collaborations delivered over a period of up to 30 months.
2. Development Grants: up to £150k for up to 9 months is available to undertake preparatory work to develop a future programme of research (e.g. develop collaborations, data access and linking, proof of concept/feasibility work) but broader ranging development work is permitted.
A third funding stream is expected to be included to establish an expert Research Support Facility that will provide centralised technical (e.g. AI focussed), methodological and organisational support to successful applicants.
