The UK-India Healthcare AI Catalyst (HAIC) competition

This exciting new programme offers unprecedented opportunity for UK Artificial Intelligence (AI) organisations to access one of the world’s largest healthcare markets, India. Companies receive grant funding as part of the programme along with business support to implement their solutions.  

We are looking for the best AI healthcare solutions that the UK has to offer. The programme is working with the Department for International Trade in India and the Government of India’s think tank, NITI Aayog, as part of the AI tech collaboration. The Government of India also published #AIforAll, India’s first national AI strategy.

There is huge potential for growth for UK companies expanding into India. This programme supports each company from proposals through to implementation. 

This competition will provide a part-funded route for selected AI organisations to run pilots in India under the UK-India Tech Partnership, with a view to scaling up in the market following successful pilots. The funding will be provided through grants awarded by the Department for International Trade to the successful organisations. 

Phase 1 - grant funding For 3-5 UK AI companies of between £25,000- £80,000.  Set-up, implement and run a short (6-9 months) pilot to test the feasibility of UK AI technologies operating successfully in Indian healthcare providers.

  • up to 70% costs - small business (<£10m) • up to 50% - medium-sized business    (£10m-£50m) • up to 25% - large business (>£50)

We are looking for companies to apply who can:
