GSK are always looking for novel ways to support the clinical research process, developing new medicines more efficiently, proving their worth more effectively and supporting patients in every way possible. As we all become more familiar with technology in our lives from wearable sensors to smart phone apps, expectations for the use of technology in clinical research is increasing. This expectation comes both from patients and their healthcare professionals taking part in the clinical research. GSK are looking for royalty free ideas or collaborative partners to work to deliver new ideas to move the clinical research paradigm forward.



We are interested to hear about any digital tools with evidence demonstrating proof of concept that would support our clinical research process.


Successful applicants with viable proposals with sufficient experience in the clinic will be invited to present their proposal to a group within GSK. Subsequently, if the idea is sufficiently mature with experience in clinical, there may be opportunities to scope a prototype within GSK and even to pilot the innovation within a GSK clinical study.

Key success Criteria
  • Digital tools that support the clinical research process
  • The technology should ideally have demonstrated use within a clinical research or healthcare services environment
  • Proposals should focus on patients and healthcare professionals taking part in clinical research in GSK’s main areas of interest: Respiratory, Anti-viral, Oncology and Immuno-Inflammatory diseases
Approaches not of Interest
  • Standard eCOA and eConsent platforms delivered via an app or web based platform
  • Wearable sensors measuring activity via accelerometery and/or GPS or heart rate sensors
Due Date
Apr 9
Items to be submitted
  • non-confidential proposal describing the solution and how the success criteria will be met with the proposed solution
  • non-confidential description of the technology
  • An overview of your experience with digital tools and/or clinical trials
