This document is intended as a guide to the Design Stage Gate review process for organisations applying for UK Research and Innovation’s Healthy Ageing Challenge, Designed for Ageing competition, which is open 20 September 2021 to 17 November 2021.

Successful projects will undergo a Design Stage Gate review in November 2022, to ensure that appropriate people-centred design rigour has been applied.

The review process determines whether project funding should continue beyond December 2022.
