Coeliac UK in collaboration with Innovate UK has launched a new £750k fund for research into improvements in coealiac disease diagnostics and self-care and gluten free food production.
The fund has received an injection of £500k from Innovate UK which in addition to £250k from the charity will support this new research competition.
Food manufacturers who wish to apply for the grants ranging from £50k to £250K should demonstrate that they are creating nutritious and affordable gluten free food, using novel ingredients and new methods of preservation. They should also showcase innovation in processing and manufacturing efficiency for lower cost options and technologies to improve shelf life.
The closing date for applications is 3 September 2018.
