CALL: FTIPilot-01-2016 - Fast Track to Innovation Project (Closed)


DURATION: 24 Months (ongoing)


OUR ROLE: Project Management

The British Council NEWTON -Al Farabi Partnership

The CADDNOR project aims to develop a point of care (POC) diagnostics and carbohydrate-based therapeutics, focused on the detection of Norovirus. The developed assay uses glyconanoparticle technology with potential for replacing molecular technologies and immunodiagnostics – a major shift in analytical approach. The use of carbohydrates instead of antibodies as the recognition mechanism has several advantages including their production using industrial scale, cost-effective chemoenzymatic synthesis which addressed the call topic.

A Carbohydrate Diagnostic for the Detection of Norovirus 


a simple and practical approach to multi-professional structured feedback and
debriefing, to be used after unplanned learning events in clinical environments

Since 2015.

Helping innovation grow

The TALK project is a project funded by the Marie Curie Programme, that consists of three phases, aims to guide multi-professional clinical teams learning and improving quality of patient care and patient safety together. The first phase will contribute to parallel implementation processes in specified units across the 3 participating countries and will undertake research to better understand the benefits of structured debriefing, communication and organisational culture. Secondly, using the data generated from the research study, further training materials will be developed and translated to support the wider deployment of the TALK tool. Thirdly, the TALK tool will be widely disseminated as a structured debriefing tool and implemented across and beyond all participating partners and its impact will be assessed.

The BreathSpec project aims to develop a rapid, non-invasive device that can diagnose bacterial or viral infections through ultra-high sensitivity breath analysis.  
Once developed the BreathSpec device will help reduce the development of anti-bacterial resistance and alleviate the growing problem of antimicrobial resistance (AMR) through improved diagnosis of antibiotic treatment.  The device will also reduce the scientific, clinical and financial challenges associated with the development of new antibiotics.
