NHS - Future Hospitals Initiative - Coming Soon

This call is dedicated to activities that contribute towards providing solutions in terms of products and associated services for the NHS Future Hospital.

Following a well-established collaboration among the UK National Health Service (NHS), the UK Space Agency and the European Space Agency (ESA), we are promoting innovative solutions exploiting space technologies for the benefit of the NHS ecosystem. This Open Call for Proposals is aimed at fostering activities bringing space technology that contributes towards shaping the NHS Future Hospital project initiative, recently kicked off by the Hampshire Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust.

Objectives and Scope

For many years, ESA has been at the forefront of promoting the utilisation of space technologies and know-how to support the improvement and development of solutions for downstream applications in the health sector. Many of the activities supported by ESA, carried out by industry and service providers have been validated with different user communities and deployed in concrete operational environments. They have proved to deliver substantial benefits, for instance in terms of better access to services, faster response and optimisation of resources.

This call is dedicated to activities that contribute towards providing solutions in terms of products and associated services for the NHS Future Hospital.

Use Cases

Such activities may include products and services addressing:

  • Logistical aspects (e.g. track and trace of goods, smart transportation)
  • Improved patients reach (e.g. tele-rehabilitation, tele-homecare)
  • Space-derived diagnostic tools (e.g. imaging and monitoring solutions)
  • Diagnostic collaboration networks (e.g. Artificial Intelligence assisted diagnostic service, transportable point of care solutions)
  • Services for improving environmental impacts (e.g. renewable energy, water treatment, air quality).
