Newton Fund South Africa-UK Precision Medicine Partnering Webinar

Thursday 6 April: 10:00 UK time, 11:00 South Africa time

  • Webinar registration deadline: Wednesday 5 April, 17:00 UK time (18:00 South Africa time)
  • Presentation pitch return deadline: Tuesday 4 April, 17:00 UK time (18:00 South Africa time)


Background to the Webinar

The South African Medical Research Council (SAMRC) and Innovate UK are running the Newton Fund Precision Medicine Programme in South Africa competition. The funders invite proposals for collaborative research and development projects between British companies and South African companies/researchers.

The focus is on developing new affordable precision medicine solutions to address the South African non-communicable disease burden, and take into account the wide genetic variation of the South African population. The scope focuses on four areas: Cardiovascular Disease, Diabetes, Cancer and Child Health.

To help UK and South African participants interested in this competition to meet and develop collaborative partnerships, the Knowledge Transfer Network (KTN), on behalf of Innovate UK and SAMRC, is organising a partnering webinar.

The webinar will consist of an overview of the call followed by an opportunity for participants to pitch their project ideas or technology offerings to help find partners.


Registering for the Webinar

Please register on the ticket type which most closely represents your status (UK company or academic/ research organisation, or South African company or academic/ research organisation).

Please register under the email address you intend to use to receive the joining instructions, which will be emailed to you in the week of the webinar.


How to make a 3-minute pitch at the Webinar

It's not compulsory to make a 3-minute pitch, but doing so is an excellent way of introducing you, your organisation, and your project ideas or technology offerings to other attendees, and we highly recommend that you give a pitch.

If you would like to make a pitch, please:

1. Download and complete the following two-slide PowerPoint template: South Africa-UK Newton Fund Template. Please do not change this template to another format or PDF - it must remain as PowerPoint.

2. Email the completed template to jess.sully@ktn-uk.org no later than 17:00 UK time (18:00 South Africa time) on Tuesday 4 April. Any participants registering after this time will not be able to submit a presentation to make a 3-minute pitch.

3. Please also register for the webinar if you are presenting. Only those who register will receive joining instructions, which will be emailed to you in the week of the webinar.


Notes on the Webinar

To keep the webinar to a maximum of two hours, up to a maximum of twenty 3-minute pitches will take place. If we receive over this number, we reserve the right to limit presentations on the day, based on the order they were received, and also taking into account countries and interest in scope areas in order to ensure an even balance.

If we will not be featuring your presentation in the webinar, we will let you know on Wednesday 5 April. Following the webinar all presentations will be uploaded onto our Meeting Mojo Online Partnering Platform which supports potential applicants in finding partners for this competition. Any presentations not able to be featured in the webinar will also be uploaded here.
