Text update 03 February 2023: We have updated the text within the 2nd paragraph to reflect that these competitions form part of the UK Addiction Healthcare Mission and UK Life Sciences Vision which supports the Scottish Government National Mission.
These are Small Business Research Initiative (SBRI) competitions funded by the Office for Life Sciences (OLS) and the Scottish Health Industry Partnership (SHIP).
These competitions form part of the UK Addiction Healthcare Mission and UK Life Sciences Vision and support the Scottish Government National Mission to reduce drug related deaths and harms.
OLS and SHIP are investing up to £5 million inclusive of VAT across the two competitions. Their purpose is to develop disruptive, innovative solutions that focus on detecting, responding to, and intervening in, early acute risk of non-fatal and fatal overdose.
Competition 1 – SBRI: Overdose detection, response and intervention feasibility (this competition)
This competition is for feasibility study projects which have not yet reached prototype development.
This is phase 1 of a potential 2 phase competition. The decision to proceed to phase 2 will depend on success in phase 1 and the assessment of a separate application.
Competition 2 – SBRI: Overdose detection, response and intervention demonstration
This competition is for projects with technology already at an advanced stage of development, and near ready to be deployed in a real-world environment.
This is a single-phase competition.
It is your responsibility to ensure you are submitting your application to the correct competition for your project. You will not be able to transfer your application and it will not be sent for assessment if it is out of scope.
In applying to this competition, you are entering into a competitive process.
Any adoption and implementation of a solution from this competition would be subject to a separate, possibly competitive, procurement exercise. This competition does not cover the purchase of any solution.
SHIP and OLS reserves the right not to award any contracts. SHIP and OLS give no guarantee or warranty as to the nature, or number of projects funded.
This competition closes at 11am UK time on the date of the deadline.
Your project can range in size up to total costs of £100,000 inclusive of VAT.
Who can apply
Text update 03 February 2023: We have updated the text in the 'applicant' section to advise that organisations are advised to only lead on one application.
- aim to start by 1 August 2023
- end 4 months after the agreed start date
- work in conjunction with a test bed research partner by delivering R&D services to develop a solution
- acquire evidence which will support future product approval and use of the innovations across the UK health systems (Wales, Northern Ireland, Scotland and England)
As part of your application, you must engage with a suitable research and innovation partner to serve as a 'test bed'. The test bed research partner is required to develop your proposed solution, gain relevant clinical and non-clinical advice and to determine the extent of required work within the test bed.
Suitable test bed research partners could include the NHS Scotland Regional Test Beds, or equivalents located in England, Wales or Northern Ireland, for example:
- National Institute for Health and Care Research (NIHR infrastructure)
- Academic Health Science Networks (AHSNs)
- Life Sciences Hub Wales
- Drug and Alcohol Research Network (DARN)
You can also propose any other suitable UK based alternative.
To lead a project, you can:
- be an organisation of any size, registered in the UK, European Union (EU) and the European Economic Area (EEA)
- work alone or with others from business, research organisations, research and technology organisations or the third sector as subcontractors
Contracts will be awarded to a single legal entity only. However, if you can justify subcontracting components of the work, you can engage specialists or advisers. This work will still be the responsibility of the main contractor.
Organisations are advised to only lead on one application per technology identifying a suitable research partner.
Organisations are asked to confirm if they would be willing to work with other research partners.
This competition will not fund any procurement, commercial, business development or supply chain activity with any Russian or Belarusian entity as lead or subcontractor. This includes any goods or services originating from a Russian or Belarusian source.
Text update 03 February 2023: We have added 'phase 1' to the paragraph concerning R&D contract costs.
A total of up to £5 million inclusive of VAT, is allocated across the two competitions.
The total funding available for this competition can change. The funders have the right to:
- adjust the provisional funding allocations between the phases and competitions
- apply a ‘portfolio’ approach, in order to fund a variety of projects across different technologies, themes, markets, regions, nations and technological maturities
- contracts will be given to successful applicants based upon total consensus score and capacity within the test beds to carry out the projects
For this Overdose detection, response and intervention - feasibility competition, R&D contracts will be up to £100,000 inclusive of VAT, for phase 1 projects lasting up to 4 months.
The contract is completed at the end of phase 1.
Phase 2 involves potential contracts being awarded from the successful phase 1 applicants. Up £500,000 inclusive of VAT, will be allocated for each phase 2 project, to develop a prototype product and undertake field testing for up to 12 months.
Value Added Tax (VAT)
You must select whether you are VAT registered before entering your project costs.
VAT is the responsibility of the invoicing business. We will not provide any further advice and suggest you seek independent advice from HMRC.
If you select you are VAT registered, you must enter your project costs exclusive of VAT. As part of the application process VAT will be automatically calculated and added to your project cost total. Your total project costs must not exceed £100,000.

Background and further information
Text update 03 February 2023: We have updated text within the 'background and further information' section to clarify locations of test bed research partners and additional advice regarding the deadline for contact with these organisations. There have been new updates made to the Academic Health Science Networks section. The organisation name has been updated for the National Institute for Health and Care Research.
About Small Business Research Initiative competitions
SBRI provides innovative solutions to challenges faced by the public sector. This can lead to better public services and improved efficiency and effectiveness.
The SBRI programme:
- supports economic growth and enables the development of innovative products and services through the public procurement of R&D
- generates new business opportunities for companies
- provides a route to market for their ideas
- bridges the seed funding gap experienced by many early-stage companies
SBRI competitions are open to all eligible organisations that can demonstrate a route to market for their solution. Under current regulations, SBRI contracts are open to applications from organisations registered in the UK, European Union (EU) and the European Economic Area (EEA). The SBRI scheme is particularly suited to small and medium-sized businesses, as the contracts are of relatively small value and operate on short timescales. Developments are 100% funded and focused on specific identified needs, increasing the chance of exploitation.
SBRI is a procurement of R&D services. If successful, you will receive a contract to deliver the proposed activity. Costs quoted must reflect actual costs at a ‘fair market value’ and not include profit.
You must submit an invoice for the work undertaken. All payments are made in arrears on submission of an invoice. Invoices must be submitted within 30 days of the end of each monitoring period for all completed milestones.
If you are VAT registered, your total costs are expected to include VAT that you would charge as a service provider. VAT is the responsibility of the invoicing business, and applications are expected to list total costs inclusive of VAT.
Suppliers for each project will be selected by an open competition process and retain the intellectual property generated from the project, with certain rights of use retained by the contracting authority. This is an excellent opportunity to establish an early customer for a new technology and to fund its development.
