A new funding competition for projects on sustainable plastic solutions

We have previously looked at a variety of innovations which could replace plastic packaging and prevent plastic from ending up in the ocean. There is no doubt that innovation is key to solving the plastic problem; however, innovators are faced with an additional challenge when researching and developing an idea. This is because it must be taken into consideration that the benefits of innovations will only be realised if they are readily adopted by the wider public. To stimulate innovation which fits with people’s existing behaviour patterns, or is consciously designed to encourage and facilitate changes in behaviour, Innovate UK has recently opened a new funding competition entitled “Designing sustainable plastic solutions”.

Responsible Innovation

The British Standards Institute, sponsored by Innovate UK, has recently published a free to download PAS 440:2020 Responsible Innovation – Guide. The guide aims to provide comprehensive direction for companies on best practice for innovators. It helps those companies consider the wider implications of their innovation, capture the outcomes of that consideration, and communicate those outcomes to stakeholders.

Call for rapid sanitising technology for ambulances

Do you have an innovative or novel approach to clean ambulances quicker to help combat COVID-19? The UK Government is asking for your help. Currently it can take up to 45 minutes to clean ambulances once they have transported a patient suspected of having COVID-19. Rapid sanitising technology solutions are required to enable ambulances to be effectively decontaminated faster, so that they can return to service as quickly as possible.

VAR: is technology ruining ‘the beautiful game’?

Technology is generally regarded as the creation of something to improve one or more aspects of the world we live in. However, in the world of football (or soccer if you hail from North America), the introduction of video assisted refereeing is prompting many to question whether technology is actually ruining, instead of improving, the so-called ‘beautiful game’. Some of the most recent criticism has come from English football, which saw the introduction of video assisted refereeing to the hugely popular Premier League in August 2019.

Snow Business

Last month global leaders of politics, industry, and economics gathered for the annual meeting of the World Economic Forum.  The event brought 3,000 stakeholders from around the world to the exclusive Swiss ski resort of Davos to discuss sustainability and the climate crisis.  As always, the town was covered in a beautiful blanket of snow.  But this may not be the case for much longer. The climate crisis discussed in Davos is wreaking slow havoc in mountain resorts around the world.  The Alpine setting for the conference about climate change couldn’t have been more apposite.  Rising global temperatures has shortened the average ski season by 38 days since 1960.

Unleash Innovation – will the government have a positive innovation strategy post-Friday 13th?

The Midlands and the North and chunks of Wales have voted Conservative, Boris has a “stonking” majority, and the UK will leave the EU in January. So is this the death knell for invention and innovation in the UK? Should academics, and researchers, and developers (and patent attorneys) seek alternative employment? Should we all, perhaps feeling a little doomsterish or gloomsterish, take to our beds for the next five years to sleep through it all? We suggest not.

The Internet of Medical Things: Revolutionising Healthcare

The Internet of Medical Things (IoMT) is a subsection of the more well-known Internet of Things. Broadly, the IoMT is a connected infrastructure of medical devices, software applications, and health systems and services. This infrastructure aims to improve accessibility of healthcare, while improving patient health and satisfaction with healthcare services. In 2016, it was predicted that by the year 2020, 40% of IoT technology will be health related1 (more than any other subsection). It has also been predicted that by 2022, the IoMT market will be worth roughly US$158 billion2, compared to a comparatively measly US$24 billion in 20163. We at Reddie & Grose have been closely following the progress of the IoMT which encompasses many rapidly advancing technologies and a number of potentially patentable areas.
