From Bell’s theorem and the Kochen-Specker theorem we know that any hidden variable model hoping to reproduce the predictions of quantum mechanics must be both non-local and contextual. What model satisfy these conditions and what research is being done?

Hidden variables theories is not the direction modern research actually goes since they are considered a mere complication of the systems without leading to further developing of the current one. The most popular non-local (deterministic) hidden variable theory is the De Broglie-Bohm theory which is considered to be equivalent to the other quantum mechanics formalities in terms of prediction even if this is disputed.
