Actions and Detail Panel
Spark Workshop from Arthritis Research UK and the Design Council
Sat, May 20, 2017, 10:30 AM – 3:00 PM BST
Arthritis Research UK has teamed up again with the Design Council on an exciting scheme that provides funding and support to UK-based inventors to develop products designed specifically for people with musculoskeletal conditions. This initiative aims to support the development of assistive products that can help people living with arthritis to live well and be in control as much as possible.
Shortlisted projects will receive £15,000 in addition to an accelerator programme of workshops and bespoke mentoring support over a 16-week period. Following this intensive programme, applicants who can demonstrate a clear commercial solution that will help people living with arthritis, will be invited to pitch for a further £50,000 with ongoing support.
Our panel of people with arthritis, as well as design experts, have shortlisted some interesting product ideas and we want to share these prototypes with you! So come long to this workshop at Burleigh Court, Loughborough on the 20th of May to test out and critique the products. This exclusive event is free with limited spaces so please book your place early to avoid disappointment.
