Research Acceleration Programme (RAP)

Te Tītoki Mataora is excited to partner with Te Whatu Ora and Whānau Tahi to launch the Medtech-iQ Aotearoa Healthtech Challenge. Alongside the August Te Tītoki Mataora Stage II RAP RfP, we are also seeking RAP Stages I, II and III proposals that address the three priority areas identified by our partners. These areas are purposely broad to capture the range of possible solution concepts. The normal guidelines to RAP proposals apply. The Challenge is open for the next three RAP Stage II RfP rounds between August 2023 – July 2024.

  • Long-term conditions pathway (Te Whatu Ora Priority): Innovative solutions that address any stage along the pathway of long-term condition development, from early prevention through to enhanced care – for example, from early prevention of diabetes through to chronic kidney disease and transplant – that improve patients’ health or quality of life and/or minimise health system burden.

  • Virtual/Digital Hospital (Te Whatu Ora Priority): Any technology solutions that will help move and support healthcare into the community.

  • Whānau supporting Whānau (Whānau Ora Priority): Technology solutions that empower whānau to support each other in the prevention, diagnosis and management of COPD, Cardiovascular disease or Diabetes in their homes and communities.

Stage I Next deadline 12pm Monday 25th September 2023

Stage I RAP funding supports the formation of new collaborative relationships between researchers, clinicians, companies and/or partnerships with Māori and Pacific communities. This is an open call for proposals and submissions can be made at any time. Proposals are reviewed every two months and awarded within 2 weeks.

Stage II Next deadline 12pm Monday 2nd October 2023

Stage II RAP funding identifies concepts with the potential to be viable for clinical application and commercialisation.

The Request for Proposals (RfP) including updated guidelines and templates is now available for the October RAP Stage II Round. Projects on medical and health technologies are welcome - see the Stage II Guidelines for further detail.

Note that all submissions must follow the processes of the PI’s institution. Internal deadlines for review will be earlier than our deadline for submission.
