This is a Small Business Research Initiative (SBRI) competition funded by UKRI’s Strategic Priorities Fund. The aim of the competition is to develop and demonstrate new products or services which will extract harmful pollutants from the air in domestic environments in order to safeguard the health of occupants, particularly young or vulnerable people.
- This is phase 1 of a potential 2-phase competition. A decision to proceed with phase 2 will depend on the outcomes from phase 1 and assessment of a separate application into a subsequent phase 2 competition.
- Only successful applicants from phase 1 will be able to apply to take part in phase 2.
This competition aims to address the challenge of poor air quality in the home by supporting research and development (R&D) for affordable domestic products or services. Your solution must be able to protect the health of residents by removing one or more harmful household pollutants from the air in homes. This can include any which have entered the domestic setting from outside. You may wish to work with academics or health care specialists who can help test and validate the effectiveness of proposed solutions.
