UK Vaccine Network - Preclinical Vaccine Development Competition

UK - Department of Health (DH)

The Prime Minister established the UK Vaccine Network in June 2015 to ensure that the UK was at the forefront of the global fight against future disease outbreaks. The UK Vaccine Network has identified a range of human diseases with epidemic potential in low and middle income countries for which the development of Vaccine Products is a priority. The Department of Health and Social Care is collaborating with Innovate UK (an arms’ length body of the Department of Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy) in running this competition. Innovate UK has considerable expertise in running competitions of this nature. The competition was open to all organisations that were able to demonstrate that their product or work has a realistic route to market, whether in the short or long term, and is primarily for the benefit of low and middle income countries. Successful projects were awarded a research contract wholly funded by the Department of Health and Social Care and administered by Innovate UK. The Department of Health and Social Care made up to £24,719,293 available to run the competition and fund the successful projects.

Programme to pilot the use of Development Impact Bonds - a new payment by results tool - to achieve development outcomes (DIBs Pilot).

UK - Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office

This programme will pilot Development Impact Bonds (DIB), a new business model for tackling complex social problems in international development by financing programmes on a Payment by Results basis. This work will look at building the evidence for the suitability of DIBs in improving the efficiency and effectiveness of development programmes in areas including income generation, health and disability, by supporting a small number of projects designed by other donors or delivery partners where this financing structure is desirable and feasible. Evidence generated through the pilot will help us to understand when DIBs may be an appropriate commissioning tool, how they can be designed to support providers to innovate and deliver better outcomes, and the costs and benefits of using DIBs.

Transformation Through Innovation in Distance Education

The University of Manchester

Transformation by Innovation in Distance Education (TIDE) aims to improve the quality of higher education in Myanmar at a critical time in the country’s development. After years of low investment in the higher education system, there is now an increasing demand for skilled graduates to meet new employment needs, particularly in relation to the environmental management of Myanmar’s natural resources to ensure sustainability over years of rapid development. TIDE brings together universities in the UK and Myanmar to improve the quality of distance learning to result in more employable graduates. The partnership will innovate and strengthen the quality of the distance education system at institutional levels and in the design and delivery of learning, focusing on environmental science disciplines and making use of the rapidly emerging ICT infrastructure.

Cross Border Conflict Research Programme Lot 1

Chemonics International Inc

The objective of the programme is to improve effectiveness of HMG investments in fragile and conflict affected situations (FCAS), by providing real-time data, expertise and public good research to inform DFID and Whitehall policy and operations including through the Whitehall Conflict Security and Stability Fund (CSSF) and DFID programmes. The programme is broken into two separate contracts: Lot 1 (X-border conflict dynamics/response), and Lot 2 (Violent and peaceful behaviour). This contract is Lot 1 which is broken into the following two parts: Part A: X-border conflict ""hubs"" and x-border ""spokes."" Research will examine networks operating between major conflicts including Afghanistan, through Iran to the Middle East, through the Levant, North Africa and the Gulf to East Africa. Research will include techology based methods (e.g. satellite and aeiral imager, financial data, geo-tracking, communications and/or social media) complemented by quantitative and qualitative field work. Part B: Innovating conflict responses in an era of x-border conflict. Research will collect and collate empirical evidence on international conflict response systems, including multi-lateral and bilateral efforts focussed on peace support or stability and how they can innovate to meet the challenges of x-border conflict.

These studies have purposefully not select international development applicants and grantees for primary data collection. More detail is provided under the Constraints and Dependencies section of this TOR. The specific focus of the evaluation is to provide a rigorous and independent assessment of the effectiveness of the funding mechanism in stimulating agricultural innovation in and for developing countries.

Innovating behaviour and health surveillance for cardiovascular disease prevention in Malaysia

UK - Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS)

In Malaysia the prevalence of obesity among adolescents is increasing and non-communicable diseases, like type 2 diabetes and cardiovascular disease, account for two out of three deaths. While research in European and US-based populations has found that particular lifestyle factors might cause adolescents to be fatter and less fit we do not have a complete picture of what causes these problems in Malaysia. In this study we are going to look at how different lifestyle factors, like foods eaten, timing or frequency of eating, physical activity, sedentary behaviours and their timing or location, relate to whether adolescents have good health. We plan to use a reproducible laboratory technique, known as metabolomics, to measure 150 different components of blood that indicate a range of metabolic processes. This will help us find out in much more detail than ever before how behaviour leads to better cardiovascular health via metabolic pathways. When we know more about the pathway that leads from lifestyle to disease we will be better able to predict who will stay healthy and who will not. This research is possible because of an ongoing large community study including over 6000 adolescents, called SEACO, in Segamat, Malaysia. The aim of SEACO is to monitor changes in population health using annual surveys. Data collection started in 2012 and is repeated yearly from over 13000 households. The participants have already had measurements of their height and weight at two previous times, which we will use to look at how body size changes in different groups. We will approach children in the cohort at school to collect samples of blood and urine and ask them to wear an activity monitor on their wrist for 7 days. In a smaller selection of the sample we'll measure metabolic components in urine and see if they can tell us about what foods have been eaten recently. We also give a small group of children a smartwatch to ask them regular questions about eating so we can explore the possibility of measuring eating behaviour using the activity monitors without have to ask in future. We are interested to see whether lifestyle behaviours are associated with changes in the blood chemical profile of participants before they develop clear symptoms of cardiovascular disease or diabetes. Finally, within this project we will lay the foundations for improving the measurement of food intake to make methods passive, rather than relying on participants to tell you every time they eat.
